Living Room Goodwill Mirror

A couple of weeks ago, I spotted a dresser mirrors for sale at Goodwill.
You know, those mirrors that everyone is painting or turning into a chalkboard..

Well, when I went back the following weekend, it was still there...and I started telling DH my idea of painting it and hanging it in our living room...he couldn't understand the vision because we already had a mirror in the living room...
BEFORE PICTURE
Not only did we paint the mirror but also the coffee table, the end tables and the buffet the TV sits on..
(more pictures later on..still a work in process)

AFTER PICTURE

Still trying to figure out to decorate it, but I think it's calling
for a burlap banner..


Time to put the summer stuff away
but this old gal only has so much energy in a day..


I didn't take a before picture of this mirror but the paint was
peeling off and it did look pretty bad...


I love the scroll and the arch...


It's a great additon to our living room...

I'm linking to these parties.....

I found a similar mirror at a charity fund raiser for just $10.00. I painted it white and added a glaze. It looks great with another mirror leaning against it. I love layering.

Beautiful job on the mirror! Found you via Mod Vintage Life. Pop on over for a visit when you get a moment. I found a Goodwill mirror for $6.99 that is hanging in my dining room now. Tootles,
