In the tutorial the writer mentioned it costing around $50 for the supplies- not bad....but combined with the time it would take me to assemble it, I decided to skip it and take my chances with my neighborhood antique store.;)....and low and behold- SCORE!
Here's what I found:
a fabulous vintage wooden (painted gold) mirror- $42 on sale for $35. SOLD!
Here's what I did to brighten the baby up!
And here's how it looks in the new powder room.
I also added a couple paintings beside it on the wall that I have been wanting to hang for years now.
they are close to my heart because Zella and I made them when she was tiny:)) (I painted the backgroound color and drew lines into the wet paint and when it was dry Zella went to town with various shades of gray)
Oh- and we moved the light fixture from the bedroom downstairs for the powder room- I'm digging the mix of old/new, brass/silver!
