::Mirror, Mirror On The Wall::

I love yard sales!! Most of you know, I make a 'best friend' everywhere I go. I can't help it! I enjoy listening to everyone's story, or maybe I'm just a busy body? Nevertheless, I got to met the sweetest little man, ever!!  He began telling me about how he loves collecting old junk, SEE best friends!! After talking with him for bit, he tells me we got there to late (the story of my life) because he had a ton off stuff -- for great deals!! BOO! Then I see a gem!! 

Here she is!


OH MY STARS!!

I was so excited, she's a beaut!  She is so old and needs so much love but oh, what fun!  



First things first, this mirror needed to come out and take a bath!  Not sure if you could see from the first picture but, there was a lot of parts missing.  I then reconstructed them and fixed the wood and took out maybe 50 nails from the back!  It looks to me that it has been redone at least four times before me.  I love all the character. Now the fun part, paint!  Here's what I picked! 



I sprayed the frame front and back with this delicious red! Then I grunged it up a bit... added new backing and wh'la!! She Is Done :0)
