"Shabby" Mirror





Thirty years ago, I would have called this little mirror “shabby”….


Pretty sad, huh? 
Dull, depressing, unwanted...but I bought it at a yard sale anyway.




I added paint, distressed it and applied some pretty roses……



Now I can say that it’s REALLY “shabby” !!!

  3. So pretty Sherry. That's all it needed was a fresh coat of paint and a little flower love. I really like the placement of the flowers still letting the details in the wood show through.

  15. You have really transformed that mirror into something spectacular! Even today, I probably wouldn't see the potential you did. You really brought out all the best of it.
