Funny how a $3.00 mirror can inspire you to change your whole room around!...












Sure was a lot of photos....for that little mirror!

Found a bench while biking yesterday morning...In someones garbage!!!!

Not above me at all to stop and ask If I could take it!

I'll show you soon...sooooooo cute!

  21. Love the mirror!! A friend of mine has one just like it that her daughter was going to put it in the trash. We saved it and gave it a white coat of paint, plus a little sanding and it turned out so pretty...like yours!! It now has a new home in her bathroom.

  26. that little mirror deserved lots of photos. what
    a difference a good eye and the right amount
    of paint can make.
