The Ugliest Mirror of Them All

I haven’t been to the thrift stores in a few weeks when I usually stop in a three times a week. I guess it was my way of trying to save money and I was sick of thrift stores because all of the shopping we did for our birthday party. I went to the Goodwill on Thursday intending to buy a brass lamp for my bedroom and it is probably a good thing that I didn’t find one since I have too many lamps in the house to begin with. While I didn’t find the lamp I was looking for, I did find this hideous mirror.

…and yes I did buy it! I think even Breeze was perplexed with all the details on it. When I showed it to Milla, her first question was: “Kah, is that fruit?” Sigh, yes Milla it is and pine cones. My intention is to spray paint it a lovely shade of teal. Spray paint can cover all evils. The mirror only set me back $12 so it won’t be a complete waste if I don’t like it.

I have a feeling I’ll love it though. When I convinced myself to purchase it, this is what I envisioned. Can you spot the fruit?

Isn’t it the most beautiful ornate mirror you have ever seen? Seriously it is just gorgeous. Hopefully, my mirror will look half as nice. And this picture convinced me to paint it teal.

It is going to look great! That looks like the Ikea Edland dresser.

      I already painted it teal but I had left my camera in my father’s car but the weather sucked today anyway as you noticed so I’ll post about it tomorrow.

    OH definitely will be beautiful… Anytime you see crazy shapes like that, you know they are going to look wonderful in a solid color. Especially teal!

    I am certain it will be hot in a great color to boot. Cool find, leap of faith and commitment. It will be great! Especially with inspiration like that.
