With some paint I had on hand for other projects, I quickly added some color and stripes to the mirror. I love the way it turned out and that it adds some visual interest right when you walk in the door. It is nice to have a designated spot for our key and a little mirror there to take a quick look before walking out the door. It also has the added bonus of perfectly covering up the ugly phone jack.
I got rid of the other pictures and slimed down our winter wear to the few things we will need over the next several weeks as spring struggles to arrive. I may have to come up with a better spot for our gear next winter, but for now I will appreciate this cleaned up little corner of my kitchen. It makes me smile every time I come home, especially since it didn't cost me a dime.
