Mirror, Mirror......

5.30.2010

.......on the walls. Several of you that know me too well said that I would change things up after the painting was done. Yes, a few things did move around and here are a couple of those changes.




The large round mirror that was here for many years has been replaced with this mirror
that was over the fireplace. I love this new look.


The large round mirror moved to here and replaced a painting I had on the wall.


The vignette on the foyer chest changed up some too.


Replaced the pineapple lamp with this homemade one. This is a pottery jug that I bought
at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago at half price and we turned it into a lamp.  I think is has more
of the country French look.






More old books and still have my favorite bull.


To see the before of this chest go here.





The mirror looks better on this larger wall.


I love the reflection of my hutch in the mirror.




I am joining Metamorphosis Monday at Susan's BNOTP and Tabletop Tuesday at
Marty's A Stroll Thru Life. Be sure and join the fun at these parties.

I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their three day weekend.

Y'all come back now,

KIM

  14. I think the ovals in the mirror and the "warped" circles on the pottery lamp compliment each other very well. It's a great look all around. very up scale!

  15. Your home is beautiful. I love the jug-turned-lamp. What a brilliant idea! And I had to go back and check out your chest of drawers makeover. I LOVE it! I saw you at Metamorphosis Monday. From one Texan to another, "ya'll take care!". :)

  16. I got caught up in looking at the before and forgot where I was! When I came back, I hardly recognized the place..I love the lamp.. I HAVE to find a Hobby Lobby. The paint job looks wonderful, the mirror is great in that spot and I like the lamp shades in the dining room...
    Have a great week too.

  34. Kim, I absolutely love your chest and the gorgeous vignette you have on it. The mirror is stunning and it really creates a sense of height that really seems to give the chest even more importance. Your home is definitely one of my favorites. I love it all. Thanks again for joining the party. Hugs, Marty

  45. Great photos. Isn't it fun to change things up a bit. Sometimes you have to move things around a bit to find their best "home". I love the cutout work on the round mirror. I never noticed that before.
