Hello Friends and welcome to your Long Weekend!!! Happy Memorial Day Weekend! I hope you all have made wonderful plans to celebrate and enjoy your Family and Friends. If your family is anything like mine you are running around from 8th grade promotions, Graduations, school dances and celebrations!
One added Blessed event for my family this weekend is the celebration of, my very young Father’s, 80thBirthday, he still runs circles around me! So hard to believe how great 80 can look on some people these days. So pardon my personal shout out to My wonderful Dad, Happy Birthday Papa!! We all love you so much!!
Okay, down to the business at hand, if you’ve been keeping up with me on my Facebook page, I’ve already explained my difficulties in bringing you today’s project. Not difficult at all to do, just difficult to photograph!! (Disclaimer here folks, and I’m sure no shock to any of you) I am not a photographer, nor have I ever claimed to be. So when my frame broke on my bathroom mirror and I was lucky enough to salvage this one from my neighbor’s garbage to redo I was ecstatic!! Another NO COST project, right? Well yes, I redid the mirror, and it was awful to start, but solid wood.
I think it turned out beautiful…I mean I am literally in love with frames now!
I had no idea when I secured the mirror in place and put it back in its spot on the windowsill, that It would be completely impossible for me to photograph the mirror and all its detail, to share with you, without my reflection being in it!
Ahemm.. So what you are viewing are some of my feeble attempts to show you my beautiful newly chalk painted and distressed mirror frame!
This last one is where it actually lives now in my house!! I hope you enjoyed it!! Hey, anyone recognize the ruffled lampshade? I pray you all enjoy a very safe and fun filled Memorial Day Weekend!!

Mirrors add sparkle and bring light into your home. You've achieved both with such style and grace. What a wonderful achievement to turn a cast off thrift store find into au courant accessory. Bravo. VirginiaReplyDelete
