Now, because I prefer color..loud and proud and bold, I needed to add color other ways. A few weeks ago, I hauled home this mirror:
Blaaaa...I mean, I like Pier One stuff, but not this mirror.
Once my walls were white-ish and bare, I went shopping in my basement. A good thing about being a furniture hoarder, is I can do that *smile*
I chose green. Because I love it..no other mindblowing reason. I knew the colors the shapes already were would probably come thru in the distressing so I matched up the color and painted it into the groovies too I didnt want chaos'. In true Christie style tho, I did paint the sunburst groovies a different color..you know I love perfectly mismatched matched things... I distressed, oiled, waxed and added copper leaf around the mirror.....viola!
I never realized how much it takes getting used to a mirror where one wasnt before...I scare myself everytime I walk by...
