I want to start off this week's Mod Mix by showing a room done by the
Queen of Mod Mix - Valorie Hart aka Visual Vamp
Go to her blog to check out the house she redid for a client.
She mixed their collection of antiques with new pieces, new fabrics and new art to create a home that
is exciting while respectful of its heritage.
See all the rooms at her blog -
I finished my tile project in the kitchen.
Here's a bit of it. I want to finish at least one more little project in here before I show it all.
But it looks like I have all new tile.
Here's a reminder of how it did look.
I hated those black tiles soooo much.
I changed all of it for less than $15. No I did not use paint.
I used white high gloss sign vinyl. Cut and stuck on...very carefully.
I'll show up close and all details about it this week.
It's totally washable and the manufacturer guarantees it will stay stuck and last outside for 15 years.
Inside it should last indefinitely.
Yes, it was time consuming...about 8 hours worth of work but less time than retiling.
I still want to retile someday but for now this is pretty darn good.
I really love it. So much better.
And really....it looks like real tile...it is just as glossy as the original tile.
Now, my favorite mixes of last week...
Valarie's window shade made from an old feedsack mixed with her red chandi at
I have to say that chandelier painted red makes me very happy and then to mix it with
the rough texture of the feedsack behind it...just makes such an interesting statement.
This one I've loved for awhile and was happy to see that
It's a Wannabe Decorator's Life linked up.
The new chairs mixed with her older table work so well with all the other elements in the room.
Erin's house is very much Modern Country at its best.
After a very recent move Nancy of
created this room for her daughter.
She mixed it up by adding very modern bedding and pillows and drapery to antique furniture.
You have to see the whole room to see all the inventive things she did in here.
All in all a very successful first week for my Mod Mix Monday.
