Antique mirror

I am trying to think of when I first saw this done in a home or picture.  It was probably about 10 years ago and I was in LOVE!!!  Antique mirror.....I had to have me some.  Here are just a few pictures of where I have used it.  I could search the internet for a gazillion other images but I have a Christmas install today and I am madly rushing about like pigs after food.
This is from my master bathroom.  The whole wall was mirrored and I had them take it down and add about a 9" wide border in pieces all the way around.  
I was trying to take the picture without me being in it.
It is amazing that I still love it after so many years.  I can't say that about much [in the decorating world that is!]
This is in a foyer I did.  There were 2 closet doors and we were trying to dress it up a little.  Had the inserts made to fit right in.
I know you are wanting it now......
Here is the same foyer...a picture of the chandelier.  I think we found this at Lakewood Flea Market [tear drop falling...I still miss that place] in a box and it was so cheap.
Isn't the finish great?  We did not do a thing to it!  WOW...how did this go from mirrors to chandeliers?  Crap...my "add" is in full swing today :)  Please forgive.

On another thought, Denise and I got 2 place settings done yesterday...one more to go.  Our presentation is Sat.  Think we could have started this a little earlier?  I have lots of pictures and will share after it is over.  Our theme is "using what you have" to set a table.  Lord, we tore up her house yesterday looking for things and trying to be creative.  Of course we both have quite a bit of stuff being in the  design business. I am sure people will be thinking "those girls are on crack if they think I am going to believe they didn't buy anything".  OK...we did buy 2 cans of spray paint.  Stand down people.

Thanks for all of the comments about the pink bedroom.  Carson loved it!  


Pin It!

Yes I want it!!! I might have to post this on my blog sometime if that is ok. Such a nice way to make a regular old mirror special. Gosh I love it.

Love this antique mirror- looks so lovely in both spaces and I'm wild about that mossy greeny grey trimwork...and the brick wall for that matter:) Gorgeous all around!

I'm bookmarking this post. I am replacing some closet doors and I WANT TO DO THIS! Lordy, do I love you....

Got the bad news about Lakewood when I was at scott's this month. (see how long it's been since I'd been to ATL!). I must admit I'm a little jealous of your chandelier snag. It is yummy. and a bargan? What I live for!

Oh, I love the vanity mirror (found it on Cottage & Vine) but then I saw the closet doors and I love those just as much. Beautiful!

I love love love these pics! This might be a dumb question, but did you antique these mirrors yourself? If so, HOW DID YOU DO IT?!
