It’s funny how things work out. I bought these mirrors knowing precisely where I wanted to put them (above the night tables, on each side of the bed). I also bought this mirror below (another $10 Goodwill find) having no idea where I’d put it. I actually found this one first.
[Side note: This is a glimpse into a room that has not yet been seen on the blog. That frottage wall treatment is in my kitchen. The kitchen will be going through a renovation in a just a little while so I'll soon be filling you in on it's past, present, and future.]
I didn’t love the two matching mirrors against the board and batten so I swapped those two out and put this one in. I must like to pretend that I don’t have enough things to paint already so, of course, I wanted to paint the latest mirror before hanging it in the room. I imposed a rule this time: only paint it a color I already have. Here’s how it ended up.
Do you recognize the color? It’s Martha Stewart’s Cornbread – the same can used to paint the front door. Here are a few more shots to show you how things are looking in the room with the bedside mirrors removed and this new mirror added.
I finally put the first coat of glossy white on the four doors in the room too. I ran out of paint though! And then I got sick with a sore throat and cold. But at least there’s progress!
