mirror mirror on the wall

While we were on our honeymoon we stopped at a Yard Sale to check it out. I fell in love with a super ornate mirror and we took it home for $5. Well, love might have been a strong word at the time. I loved the shape, the detail, but not the finish. Basically, I loved the potential of the mirror. Here it is in it's original glory. {yes, our dining room pendant is awesome}


I don't want to offend you if you like gold, and I admit it looks good it certain places, but our living room is not that place. :) So, I took a can of cream spray paint, a disposable bowl, and a brush {unconventional, but I work with what I have}, and painted the mirror. I made sure to miss a little so the finish would show through enough to give it a warm vintage look. Here's the mirror now, hanging pretty in the living room. What do you think?
