Fun blue mirror

mirrorhangingPicked up this mirror @Savers for $8.  It was cute but someone had obviously painted it black, the paint was chipping and also was on the mirror.  I like to see when others have tried to change or update furniture, but I don’t understand why sometimes people don’t take the extra steps and take the item apart before painting.  I think this person ended up giving this mirror away because it didn’t turn out well.  Believe me, I am the queen of trying shortcuts and let me tell you, they NEVER work out.  If you invest a little extra time, you’ll be happier with your results.

  1. Love this Victorian style mirror. It would look great in a girly-girl’s room or a period bathroom. They just don’t make carved wood frames like that any more – everything is moulded plastic or composite. Thanks for saving a piece of history.
