I have been putting this little paint project off now for quite a while… I’m not sure why, as it turned out to be so quick and easy, and I love how it turned out!!! I sponge painted my favorite Ralph Lauren Glaze into the large niche above the buffet in the dining room.
I am definitely not done with this room yet. I didn’t buy anything new for the room except the window treatment. Everything you see is just stuff we already had. I would love to get a bigger mirror with a dark frame for the niche, and maybe some hurricane sconces for each side.
I found this sconce online at Kirklands, so I think I need to go down there and see what they have in stock. The have coupons all the time, so I may head over there next time I am in that part of town…
Here are the curtains. I found them online, I think they are so pretty.
|The table and hutch are family heirlooms from the 1890’s. They are not super-functional, but way to pretty to give up…
The sponge painting process was really easy. I used a natural sea sponge and literally just sponged the glaze on the wall, just making sure not to leave too much in one spot. Home Depot does not carry Ralph Lauren any more, but with the code, they can still make it for you. Here it is:
We finished our kitchen backsplash a few weeks ago, you can see that here. I hope to get my master bath done as well in the next few weeks. It has a little ways to go. We had some drywall patches done today and there is a lot of caulking and painting still to be done…
Thanks for checking out my space!
I will be linking up to some of the fabulous linky parties listed here and here:
