How was your weekend? Same old same old over here, soccer Saturdays, firepit with the neighbors and lots of good food.
I failed to mention last week that amongst my many mishaps was also a mirror accident. I SMASHED THE MIRROR ABOVE THE SIDEBOARD ON THE FLOOR. Ugh!!! While the glass thankfully didn’t brake, the frame wasn’t that lucky and it was just split and broken.

I’ll share with you soon, hopefully.
So now I had to try out some mirrors out of my stash. I do have a mirror stash 😉
First I tried a mirror that has been hanging in the basement:
It’s supposed to hang tall though and I don’t like it this way. It looks much better in the basement.
Then I tried the next mirror that I have just stashed away in the storage room:
Not bad but kind of boring!
Then I thought about a round mirror that I have in that same stash but I really dislike the color and finish of it:
This round mirror used to hang over our living room sofa in my brown and beige phase.
I ended up priming the round mirror with some Kilz spray primer and then I used some mint Valspar spray paint. I’m a total idiot because I threw the can out before writing the name down for my blog post. Typical! Sorry 😉 The reason that I picked a minty turquoise is the light above my kitchen sink.
And I didn’t stop with the mirror. The lamps that used to be on the sideboard are now gold. They used to be beige, then silver and now are sporting a shiny gold.

And that’s it. Short and sweet post!
What have you been up to?
