I changed a mirror in my den months ago. I still liked the mirror and didn’t know what I should do with it. Then it hit me. I think most of my ideas come out of nowhere. Just all of a sudden a light bulb goes off. I love those moments. Originally, I had this dinky little mirror in my bedroom.
Too dinky. Needed something bigger and better.
I painted the replacement mirror satin black and then dry brushed it with rust color brown paint .
I still felt like it needed something more so I added my little $3 table that I had already painted the same way.
I really wanted to add a vintage suitcase on top of the table, but I have yet to find one for a price I am willing to pay.
I have my an old silverware chest and thought it might work. I painted some painter’s tape black to add the stripes that are on the vintage suitcases I like. I just put the tape on wax paper.
Spray painted it. Let it dry a bit and transferred it to a new piece of wax paper so the edges could dry.
I didn’t want to do anything permanent to it because it belonged to my husband’s mom.
I placed it on the table.
Someday I hope to have the mauve chair recovered.
So I know for a fact the big mirror looks better than the little mirror. But what I need to know from you is table or no table or find a new table? Leave the striped chest or keep looking for a suitcase? Remove the tape? Remove the silverware chest? Let me know what you think. Thanks.
