Mirror Revamp!

Running late today and now I feel such pressure to get off a decent post. LOL.  So lets start with this fab mirror I found online. The owner said he had 3, which made me so excited and he was asking 20.00. At 20 I was thrilled and when I told him I wanted all three he offered a great deal..all 3 for 50. I did the happy dance. These ladies were a huge 45 x 33.5!

So Mr. C and I met this guy in a parking lot in town, he lived about 20 miles from us and was coming to town for dinner so we thought that would be good. I can only imagine how sketchy the transaction looked! We After sanding and priming, I painted this cream white and glazed with a mocha coffee glaze. I really do love it! I think I will take the other one and make a chalkboard.

Love the details on this lady!

Thanks for stopping by and come back again!!

Came over from Etcetorize to see your mirror transformation. Doing deals in a parking lot - what we will do for a piece of furniture! Great deal on the three! Love the transformation!

Visiting from MM and just love your mirror. Nothing like a good deal. It is great to find something online and not be many miles away. Good for you sista great shopping.

Hubba said...

Love how this looks! Mirrors are so beautiful to have in a home and this new look looks great! I'm a new follower from a blog hop, feel free to follow back!

Jaye Leon said...

You know, ordinarily I think that mirror would be hideous! You know that early american stuff? But what you did to it completely transformed it!! It is stunning! Keeping my eye out from now on for all the uglies at the thrift store!!!

Great find and I love how you've made it yours.

That looks great! I should try that on a table I have - nothing else seems to be working, and this is exactly the effect I'd like on it.
