I've had this mirror forever. I think the first time I ever used crackle paint was on this frame and I loved the look at the time. But it is time for a change.
So, I took it outside and painted it this bright turquoise! Excuse my houseplants. It had rained earlier that day and I put them out to enjoy it. I think the turquoise looks great on the mirror and just a few months ago it would have found a perfect place in my home. But oddly enough, my tastes have changed so much, it just didn't fit in anywhere. It is the perfect size and shape for a spot in the bathroom and I've wanted a mirror in there, since there are no windows for light.
I hung it in there for a bit but, as much as I like the color, it just bugged me.
So, I painted it again. I mixed some pewter with mocha java and got this rich, delicious brown.
I love it! I love it so much that it inspired me to keep working (playing) in the bathroom.I found this in my storage the other day but it had a portrait drawing of someone. I remember buying the picture at a yard sale and liking it a lot. Now, not so much. So I slipped the portrait out and slipped in this page from an old Country Living.
And then I gathered things from around the house.
These are two of the Warren Kimble prints I was talking about. I just love them and now that we have a claw foot tub...even better!
