This big mirror has been hanging in the dining room ever since we lived in this house. The dark wood just wasn't going to cut it against the dark walls. It would just fade away.
This small, ornate mirror was a yard sale find a few weeks ago. I actually don't mind the gold finish on it, but white will just work better on the dark walls.
I had to take some time to tape around the edge of the mirror and cover it with newspaper before I could start the actual painting. The prep and the clean up are my least favorite parts. I'd like an assistant for those annoying tasks. I'm talking to you, sweet husband of mine.
When I see the after pics, it makes all the tape, newspaper, and clean up worth it, though. It's oh so crisp and clean.
Here's a quick glance back at the dining room before this makeover began. I'd say things are looking a little more fresh around these parts.
The library dining room is moving right along. I'm hoping for a full on reveal soon. In the mean time, I have some other little projects to share with you. I could get used to this summer break thing, how about you?
***Psst...did you notice my life in projects dropped the "my" and is straight up life in projects now? AND did you notice it dropped the .blogspot.com and is straight up .com? B.J. can never remember if my blog is called MY life in projects or just LIFE in projects. He said it's just all so confusing because the web address was different from the blog title and my twitter handle was different, as well. Okay, okay, I got the memo. Life in Projects, it is. :) Click here if you want to follow life in projects on Bloglovin. Pin It
