Hey guys! We have been kind of “blah” around our house lately. I haven’t been feeling well and I don’t think Emily has either. She’s teething and has a runny nose so her naps have been wacky. Which of course makes us all wacky!!
But I did want to take a few minutes to share with you guys a little somethin’ somethin’ I’ve been working on.
Scott’s parents sold their home in NY. There was a ton of antique, really nice furniture in that home and his parents were generous to give some of the pieces to us. More on that in another post.
Anyway, one of the pieces that his parents sent down to us was this gigantic vintage mirror! It was gorgeous!
Please don’t look at my disgusting thunder thighs! Just look at the mirror, mmmkay?
The only problem with this mirror was the color. It’s such a gorgeous piece but the gold color just wouldn’t go with anything in our home.
So I decided to paint it!
I went to Hobby Lobby looking for just the right product for this job and I think I found it!
This stuff was awesome and worked great.
I didn’t even tape the mirror off. I just got busy painting using small brushes!
And here’s how she turned out:
Of course since I didn’t tape off the mirror or cover it with paper, there were some smudges on the mirror, but they came off easily with a smaller brush. I could have also used a Q-Tip or something like that. It came right off.
I decided to put her above our mantle in the playroom. I figure I can hang a wreath or mossy monogram from it or something like that. It’ll be super fun to decorate for Halloween as well!
The mirror looks like it’s just leaning against the wall, but it’s actually up there with a hook as well. That way if something weird were to happen that would possibly tip the mirror over, it will get caught on the hook by the wire that runs across the back of it. Safety first, people!
What do you think? Do you like the silver or the gold color better?
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great Thursday!!
I am linking up to many of these great parties:
