A 180 Turn From the Last Post

In the last post I talked about my silver tray display on the west wall of the dining room.
I am still tweaking the opposite wall but I'll show you where it stands as of today.

Obviously I moved the table to get a direct shot of this side of the room.

I had extra trays and coffee pots after completing the west wall, so I decided to use them here.

It ties in with the glitz of the hearth and surround. 

I covered the existing tiles on this fireplace with the mirror mosaic years ago and I'm still happy with the look.  It was a big project because all the mirrored pieces had to be snipped one by one. I have enjoyed the look for many years so it was worth it.

The candles I found at an estate sale.  The mirror came from a yard sale.  It does have a pretty frame that needs some repair.  I tried it here without the frame and decided to keep it that way.

The artwork is from a charity resale shop.

This was how I found it.  I wasn't crazy about the frame and the mat was discolored in spots.

Sometimes the framed art at this shop is very reasonable.  I had to pay a little more for this one. I googled the artist but was unable to find anything.  If anyone has information on M. Wernick, I would love to hear it.

I painted the mat with a creamy white.

Next I painted the frame black.

It now works better with my colors and I think it did need to be freshened up.

In the next post I will cover another piece of art on the north wall.

  1. I still love the mirror tile on the fireplace. The "spruced up" picture turned out great!
