Mod Mix Monday #103

I love the mix of things in this kitchen. It's very old and new.
Even the way the chandeliers are wired together adds interest.
I love a big antique mirror in a kitchen...so unexpected!
The cabinets are a little too rustic for my taste but I adore all else.

So much stuff I liked in this past week's Mod Mix Monday that I am featuring eight different things I loved.
That's ok, it's my blog and I can if I want to.

Here they are!
Revi of Revisionary Life showed how to create your own faux aged mirrors.
I have to say I'd been thinking about doing this myself. I love the look of aged mirrors but it seems a lot
of work to spot remove the silver from the back of a real mirror.
Why not just paint a piece of glass with mirror paint and age it?
I'm so wanting to try this. 
Revi Revisionary Life also painted this old cupboard shabby white. 
I really love the vignette on the top too.
Angela of Number Fifty-Three painted another lovely dresser. 
This time the perfect shade of blue.
Debbie of Debbie Dabble always has lots of color in her garden but look at her azalea bush!
It's incredible!
Cindy of Cottage Instincts painted this little table in Miss Mustard Seed's Kitchen Scale.
I love the way Cindy styled this with the blue green hydrangeas and blue canning jars and blue books.
By the way...my friend Amy is having a sale of Miss Mustard Seed paint.
Buy it here - Maison Decor.
Since it's in powder form, it is very easy and inexpensive to ship!
Lisa of Helene's Legacy organized her jewelry drawer using vintage china dishes.
I love this idea!
Melissa of Daisy Mae Belle created herself a quick and easy deck to cover an
ugly spot in her yard. She called it redneck but it looks pretty good to me!
Look how adorable this little bedside table is created by The Weathered Door.
It's a vintage suitcase with mid century legs attached.
She styled it great too.

Now on to this week...
Share below.
Remember anything old made over to be new...anything new changed up to look old.
New and old together...

Nita, I've been reading but not commenting...just been too sick to think clearly enough to put a sentence together.
I'm a bit better now and I HAD to comment on Daisy Mae Belle's deck!
This is my solution to the bottom of my yard! I'm SO happy!
