My Kitchen only has ONE little, tiny window in it (above the sink), so when I painted my cabinets, I decided to have some mirror cut to adhere (using velcro) to the inside/backs of the open cabinets.
I needed six pieces of mirror, and got them cut at a local picture framing company for $10 a piece. It has really helped open up the space, and kind of tricks you into thinking there are more windows. Sneaky, huh? 🙂
I lined the cabinets with a rubbery, black shelf liner material, (from Walmart) so the dishes would have a soft landing when unloading them from the dishwasher.
I added this little piece of trim around the cabinets that I took the doors off of, to make sure the lack of doors looked very intentional. I didn’t want it to look like I was just too lazy to paint and re-install the doors. It took a little more time to do this step, but I think it was well worth the extra work, and gives the open cabinetry a nice, finished look.
Thought I’d share of few more of my favorite bargain shopping finds again today…
I found this set of 12 little tiny wine glasses (they’re only about 5 inches tall) at a flea market (that’s inside of an old barn….heaven) for $6.00! Aren’t they precious! They’re one of my most favorite possessions. 🙂
I got this mirror at Pier One on clearance for $60 (marked down from $250) last year.
Still haven’t decided where it’s going to hang. Love the grooves. Just not sure about its color or if it needs extra trim around the opening where the mirror is.
Well, I’m off to work on a product for letteredolive.com. It’s my favorite one so far…so excited to show ya’ll! The website is coming along. The antibiotics I’m taking make me kind of sleepy, so I’m only able to stare at this computer for so long these days. I will be SOOO happy when this sickness goes away! 🙁
