My old mirror has had a makeover.

Ok, my second project for the week was redoing a mirror that was given to us as a wedding gift when my husband and I got married almost 12 years ago.
I absolutly lurved it when it was given to us and it hung on our wall for about 7 years, for the last 5 it has pretty much sat in a cupboard, {with the top off it} not realy knowing what to do with it.
It was a mirror that was made especially for us, wonderfully made and stained a nice baltic look.
The thing is, it isnt realy my style anymore so I decided to bring it into 2010 with a makeover.
Here is how my mirror looked just beforew the first lick of paint...

You can see the top wooden panel had come off {lying next to it} after painting I nailed it back on.
I sanded back the edges once again to give it that worn look.  I also added 3 hooks, that I had on hand.  They were silver to start with but I painted them in a flat black and then screwed them in.

This Beautiful mirror now has a new home at our front door {I have already had alot of ooh's and ahh's from friends who have visted}.

♥ Hope you all have a beautiful day xoxox
