Mirror Gets A Makeover

I’ve had this sweet little mirror since FOREVER.  Okay…technically, it was my mom’s.  She’s had it since FOREVER.  At one point growing up, it lived in my room.  I went off to college and SO didn’t appreciate it, so it stayed at home.  Thank goodness it didn’t experience any of my scary college days & decor ;)  Luckily, mom isn’t one for throwing things out.  She likes to keep things around for those “just incase” times.  A while back, I asked mom if I could “steal” the mirror back and my dad she was more than happy to let me have it.  You know, less clutter in the garage and all :)  I felt a little bad because I knew the mirror wouldn’t serve as it’s intended purpose.  It was on to a new…and improved…life.  And after giving it a little facelift, I have to say that I’m in LOVE. 

Heck if I forgot to take a picture of it before we dismantled it, but you get the idea.  Gold and old.  Just imagine it with a mirror in the middle.  Cute enough, but in desperate need of new life.mirrorredo 

After a coat of my favorite Rustoleum Black Satin spray paint, she looks better than before.  I decided to put her in the entryway with our little initial inside.  I have a feeling I’ll be changin’ that up A LOT!!!

Now I need to focus on changin’ up this crazy table!!!  It needs to be “summer-ized'” in a BAD way!!!!!!

  10. Love the oval frame. Very neat idea!!

    You could change the lamp shade with a ocean blue shade. That would put the summer in it! :)

  21. Found the exact same frame recently but it was plastic. Wasn't willing to pay $15 for a plastic frame. I was going to spray it hot pink, though. :) Super cute!!
