Since I don't have a window above my kitchen sink, I am forever trying out new kitchen sink vignettes...
I picked up this old mottled strip of brass ages ago at the salvage yard charmed by its worn appearance, but it wasn't until a few weeks ago that I thought of using it as a back splash for my kitchen sink.
It took me a while to get used to it but now I find myself really loving how it looks but even more how it functions.
The bead board was always getting wet and beginning to swell and peel so my little experiment has become a life saver!
Plus I have fallen in love again with brass and this piece has acquired some of the best patina I've ever seen.
I like to haunt our local boating consignment store looking for items to give our little kitchen some nautical flair.
I've been waiting for the perfect porthole but in the meantime found this antique wooden sifter that looks lovely set against the white bead board.
For those who don't have a window above the sink, I'd love to know how you decorate it?
