I wrote yesterday about trying to step out of the box and paint my Ballards console silver. I wasn't happy with the finish. It was not as shiny as I had wanted. I was trying for a polished chrome look. Here it is silver.
I picked up some gold paint and now all is good. It looks just like brass.
I have to get shelving. The original was with clear glass, but I am thinking antiqued mirrored might jazz it up even more.
Also, yesterday I did some touch up on my barn door. Some how my contractor couldn't find all of the powder coated screws to match the hardware so he had to use a couple of silver ones and the board he mounted it on needed painting.
See those silver screws just glaring at you!
The only oil rubbed bronze I could find that might match was spray paint and that would not have worked. So, I mixed up a little craft paint to match. Then I broke out the wall paint to do the mounting board. Now it is really done.
Amazing how little things make a difference. Enjoy your weekend!
