Happy St. Paddy's Friday out there!  So I've said before that I just have a problem buying something and utilizing it "as is" - am I the only one with this problem?  Take this mirror for example.  I really wanted a fairy tale-esque mirror for the baby's room and found the PERFECT one at World Market for 30% off!  There was nothing wrong with the mirror.  It was just white and lacked the character that I was looking for in my home.  You will come to realize that I like bright colors and if I didn't have a husband with a bit more conservative taste, I would probably have alot more kooky things in my house.  Here's the mirror before:
And here is the mirror after a nice paint job with some glazed finishing touches.  I haven't used glaze too much before so I was really excited to see how it would go over on this beautiful mirror.  Mission accomplished!  (Forgive the mess in the reflection)
I think the hardest thing about this revamp project was taping the mirror.  I decided not to show a picture of that because it wasn't pretty.  But it was necessary for an easy repaint job.  I have this vision of picking my baby boy up from his crib and looking in the mirror to see myself being a mommy.  Corny, huh?  Well, I can't wait to do that with this piece!
