"If you have a good friend, you don't need a mirror."
Found this mirror at an estate sale about two years ago. As you can see I'm digging up things from the past and giving it a re-vamp. I loved the shape and the ornamentation. But, was far less enthused with the color....a dingy goldish...brownish, boring shade of gold leaf. No doubt, it would be reinvented.
Now, as always, the price of any good piece of junk is very important. This adorable...perfect size mirror was a mere $10. Could not pass it up!
Now, after about six layers of blue, green, taupe, more blue, another shade of green and a shimmery taupe paint...this is the end result. Each layer was rubbed...scraped...and buffed. Truly, the beauty of doing this is discovering the end result that pleases you. There is no order of process...just do until you like. Love that!
I found this precious little frozen Charlotte at one of my favorite Etsy stores, the artist Jeanette Janson. She has such delightful little goodies!
Always believe in the art of reinventing!
