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.

Before:  

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.


After:

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!!
