I found this little old mirror sitting atop a high shelf
at a thrift store a couple of weeks ago...
There it sat.... all alone...
looking forlorn just waiting for someone to see it's potential,
pick it up & bring it home...
It is a modern reproduction
might possibly be vintage at the most-
with all wood construction & a beveled mirror.
I got out some of my soft gray-green paint and gave it a quick coat of paint...
and shabbied it just a bit.
I am planning on doing one more layer-
either a cream or french gray.
It reminds me of the gorgeous details that are on French Trumeau mirrors.
How I dream of a gorgeous antique trumeau in my home one day!!!
They are so incredibly beautiful! I have a few plans to make one myself-
probably after the holidays...
but would just LOVE an antique one!
Though this is a small mirror - compared to a monumental sized trumeau...
it has lots of charm and is the perfect size to place nearly anywhere.
I placed it atop the sideboard where my chalkboard usually goes for now...
Right now our power is out (arggghh!!) with the latest wintery storm that has come through...
So I came into Starbucks to enjoy the modern world,
grab a nice hot cup of Christmas blend & do some browsing.
We don't usually get a ton of snow where I live - we are in California- but we do get some.
Whenever a wet, cold storm makes it's way through, we seem to get a bunch...
This time, the leaves were not all yet off the trees,
which has caused quite a bit of tree damage and power problems for a lot of people.
We have already gotten probably 6"- 8" and more is expected tonight.
It is being photographed here to get some decent light coming in from outside so you can see it.
I do have a regular spot planned for it, though and I'll share the finished paint and where it goes -
once I can take pictures that are not in the dark!
