I Found It

5.27.2013

I told y'all that I have been making a few changes to the master bedroom and was looking for something to hang above the bed. Well, I found it. I had actually left it at the antique mall the first time and went back a few days later and figured if it was still there it was meant to be.

Here it is in the sunroom in its original state. I wasn't sure I wanted another mirror, but love the style of this piece.

A closer look at the details you can see this is solid wood. The finish is so close to the color of my bedroom walls that I thought I would paint it.

I painted it with Shutter Gray MMS milk paint and hung it on the wall and it was too blue. So back down it came.

I grabbed a wet cloth and started wiping most of the paint back off and then it was perfect.

I love how the paint is just left in the crevices.



Here is a side by side so you can really see the difference.

Hopefully the room reveal will be soon. So hard to get good light in my room this time of year.

I hit the outlet mall today and found some really good deals.

Hope your extended holiday weekend is going well.

Happy Memorial Day
