I had been looking for an interestingly shaped mirror for our bedroom for ages. I was so pleased to find this one at the local Goodwill for just over 10 bucks. It was perfect except for the tarnished silvery coating it had. (That's my youngest- Cam, helping to model my latest purchase!)
Once again, spray paint to the rescue! It was a bit of a chore figuring our how to cover the surface of the mirror so that I didn't get paint on the glass, but in the end it was well worth it!
I love how the texture and detail of the mirror seems to be more easily seen now that it is white. (Don't you just love my new wallpapered bedroom wall in the background?)
Last year I bought these hand-made corbels at a vintage store. They have sat idly in my basement until inspiration hit. At Christmas I wished for more display area in the master bedroom. I wanted a surface that I could decorate with a few Christmas-y items, yet wouldn't get in the way of our daily "living" in that room. So Hubby put them together with a piece of 2x10 and voila!- I had a new display shelf I our bedroom!I have a large collection of glass candlesticks. Actually, I used to have a large collection. When we moved houses a few years back, several of my sticks didn't survive the move. They have been boxed in the basement since then, so when my shelf was done, I lovingly un-packed what was left of them and placed them to glisten in the sunlight of our bedroom.
Here is the full vignette on the south side of bedroom. I am trying to make a real effort to keep it clutter free so that I can enjoy each of my favourite items.Thanks for the visit! Please leave a comment - I love reading them! And I'd love a few more FOLLOWERS!
Bye for now!
