I’ve been needing something for this wall in my kitchen, and I thought this piece might be what I was looking for. When I measured, it seemed like it might work. But to be sure, my friend Stephanie, suggested I use a piece of paper cut to size. I did. I immediately thought it was too small, and Stephanie agreed. However, after leaving it up for a few days, it grew on me.
I decided to hang the piece on my kitchen wall, BUT it has that middle piece that protrudes in the back, and I wasn’t sure it would actually sit right on the wall. So, I hung it on the fence to make sure that it would actually hang right. It did!
I hung it on the wall, carefully centering it, and placing it where I thought it should be from top to bottom. BAD! It was too high and crooked! I brought in the level, and a piece of thin trim. I installed one screw and used the trim and the level to get the other screw in the right place.
I left it hanging in the kitchen for a week or so, and decided that I would give it a go.
I went to get MMS wax from the basement, and when I came back, this is what I saw. Yep, it is bird poop. If you follow me on facebook, you’ve already seen this preview picture.
When I went to buy a couple of mirrors, I couldn’t really find what I wanted at a good price, so I opted for this sheet metal. (Union Jack) It comes in 1’x2’. It’s brushed nickel, just like my light fixture, ceiling fan and cabinet pulls. I used my tin snips to cut it.
Let’s look at it once more on the fence:
