Mirror Mirror On the Wall

Hey Everyone!

Well, I'm ready to celebrate and to share that I finally did it!  I finally upgraded the thrift store mirror and put it on the wall!  Do you remember the mirror I'm talking about?  I'm not surprised if you don't, I shared it a very long time ago.  Well, here's the mirror I'm talking about.


It was pretty plain and there wasn't much going on with it.  It took me a long time (too long of a time) to decide on a color to use and to just put things into action and get it done.

Well, after much deliberation, I decided on a moss green color with an accent in the middle border.  And here's what it looks like now.


I'm really happy with the way it turned out.  The color is really different than any I would, typically, choose but it matches our decor and the bonus--my husband loves the color green.  I added some little beads that look like pearls by gluing them in the center of the wooden frames where that metal layer was before.  I found at them at the arts and crafts store for $3.00. 

I think the beads help dress up and brighten up the mirror.  Overall, I'm happy with the way it all turned out.  I found a couple of pieces of furniture at my parents' house that I'd love to get my hands on to upgrade.  I can't wait to share those with you all!

Have a great weekend!!
