So a while back I picked up this beauty on craigslist for the hefty price of $12….
I love this mirror, its very heavy and well made. I know if I was one of the fabulous design bloggers you see over on my right sidebar I’d have a remarkable blog post about how I took this bargain find and made it a fabulous centerpiece of my home decor. Unfortunately I’m not a fabulous design blogger, I’m a very tired mom to three boys 4 and under with a deployed husband who uses up my creative juices with a 15 minute painting session!
So, dear readers, however few you may be….what do I do with this mirror? It was stark white when I bought it and I painted it (by hand) antique white but unfortunately I realized a little too late that my house is a big mix of beige and creme and being that we are in a rental, the mirror just fades into the the neutral walls of our home. (Also-take note-I cannot for the life of me figure out how to detach the mirror from the frame to paint it-all painting must be done by hand!) So do I paint it a brighter color? Blue? Gold? Guide me to fabulosity!
