MIRROR, MIRROR


THE OTHER DAY I ASKED THE QUESTION
 WOULD YOU BUY IT?

HERE IS THE PICTURE OF THE MIRROR WHEN I 
PURCHASED IT.

IT IS SO HARD TO GET A GOOD 
PICTURE OF A MIRROR.
I THINK ALL OF YOU SAID THAT YOU WOULD
BUY IT AND I'M GLAD THAT I DID.
I PAINTED IT AND DISTRESSED IT
AND PUT IT ON A TRUNK IN MY GUEST
BEDROOM AND NOW IT CAN BE USED AS A FULL
LENGTH MIRROR.HERE YOU GO...


THE AFTER...














THE LITTLE PHONE I PICKED UP FOR $10 AND
THE DOMINOS FOR $2


DID I GET MY MONEYS WORTH 
ON THE MIRROR?
I THINK I DID!!!

  3. Whenever I do a mirror redo I always end up with my face grinning in the finished shot... I just go with it at this point! Love the color, and the fan, and the phone.... it's just about perfection!

  9. It looks great! I would have bought it before but like it so much better now. We bought two pine night tables and matching dresser with triple mirror for our bedroom that still need painting. I'm ditching the two 'wings' on the triple mirror and just painting the centre mirror to update it. But that will be a project for July, when I am off for the summer.

  10. Lauren, the mirror is beautiful! I love the new look and color you chose, the old phone, and how clever to put the dominoes in the container. Thank you for your comments on my puzzle post today. I laughed because I was like you on Beverly's puzzle at How Sweet the Sound. It took her about 3 minutes, and I took 16 min.!!! LOL! Happy Weekend to you:)

  15. Hi Lauren,
    What a great, fun color. I knew you would turn that mirror into something wonderful. Love all of your finds from the estate sale too. They are fun....and addictive. Glad your fiance had a good time too!

  24. Completely gorgeous painting treatment on that mirror! I've been looking for a mirror for our bathroom and have seen several like this for sale, but haven't thought they were right for the room - but you're changing my mind! This looks amazing! Would be flattered if you linked up to WWWW.
