Welcome To The 77th Masterpiece Monday!

Hi, how are you? I've finally finished the last of the projects from last
Summer's list, with a few days to spare before it's officially Summer again.
I painted my hall tree white as well as the other half of my kitchen walls.
Did you know that I found this hall tree at yard sale for 25 dollars? (No, it's not a real antique). But still, nice price!
 Here is the before picture. My kitchen doesn't receive a lot of natural light.
 Sometimes it just looks way too dark, even with light beige paint on the walls.

 Wow, big difference huh?

  I also used satin paint instead of flat to help reflect light.
 I sanded it with ruff sandpaper when I finished painting.
 It brought out the detail even more than the white paint alone.

 I'm glad I redid my wall scone, it makes the corner beachier looking.

 A little close up of the details.
  Now it's perfect for hanging some of my Summer hats and beach totes.
