Updating that Gold Mirror

This gold mirror has been in our house for ever since I can remember.  It was in pictures of myself when I was a little girl.  You know the pictures where the child is holding the mirror and the photo is taken from the mirror image…Anyways.  I inherited it when we got this house from my parents.June 2009 032

Well, it was gold, not my decor taste, I’m a brushed nickel and black sorta girl.  I wanted to paint it black but never did get out the paint and do it.  I only have black spray paint and the thought of taping things off and such really get old sometimes.

I wanted a quick change, so I grabbed some brown paint that we had and went to work…painting and wiping until I got an aged feel to it and I love it!

The garland is coming up tomorrow, along with some decor below the mirror.
