~ Trash To Treasure Mirror & Roses From The Garden ~

Hello, hope you are having a fantastic day.
I plan on making some pillows and painting a few very dainty chairs in very pale creamy pink today.
Looking forward to the weekend, hoping to find some awesome yard sales and a bit of gardening with my 9 year old daughter Isabella.
Last weekend I found a mirror at a second hand store and almost didn't buy it because it needed a lot of work, but glad I did buy it. It actually came out really nice. Picked a few roses from the garden to add a lovely Spring garden look in my living room.... and now to sit back with a cup of tea out of a pretty teacup and enjoy the morning before it gets crazy.

Top part of the mirror was missing the original details and the frame was broken from couple of places.
I had a salvage piece from another furniture and a few decorative accents from another project.
Glued them on with a wood glue and let it dry over night.
Used a dark gray paint and gold leafing, bit of distressing and finished it with a light stain.
Spent $15.00 and I have a new mirror!

Well I hope you liked my mirror transformation and my Spring roses.
Wishing you a very happy and creative day!
With love always, Angela

  11. Your mirror is so pretty and unique. You did a great job on it. The roses from your garden are lovely, and mine are just starting to bloom too. They are a darker pink, but gradually turn into a lighter pink. I hope you had fun with your daughter in the garden. Spending time with family is one of our greatest gifts.

    Have a beautiful week.
