I was so thrilled when I found this mirror at my favorite place..Goodwill. I was so excited I had to immediately send a picture to Janae. She loved it too. You don't find this type of mirror very often at Goodwill--I had to have gotten there within minutes of it being put out.
This is how it looks now..now that I have painted it white, and made it all beautiful for my bedroom. I think this mirror is very very old because the wood was almost falling apart and I am actually glad I painted it just to keep it all together! Though I have read that if it was truly old it would have a beveled mirror which it doesn't. The mirror itself is extremely thick and heavy.
This is how it looked before I painted it..which I actually thought was quite pretty but I knew painting it white would make it fit in with my home much better. Also, I do believe the paint is helping it stay together.
I painted it with homemade chalk paint (which I will post about eventually, just still experimenting) and then I accented it with Rub n Buff.(in Spanish Copper my favorite Rub n Buff color).
I am really pleased with how pretty it looks in my bedroom.
