This first project is one of my favorite Home Decorator's mirrors. These babies were made in the 1960's and 1970's. I just can never have enough of them! They usually run between $12 in junk stores to $30 at antique malls. I snagged this one for $3.99! Did I say I LOVE GOODWILL?!! It was badly painted a red color and not all of the gold had been covered, what WERE they thinking?
AHHH...much better! I sprayed a layer of KILZ and then used Krylon glossy white to finish.
I had a blank spot on my bedroom wall...it fit perfectly! I love how mirrors open up a room!
My next project is a mahogany "telephone table", probably from the 1930's - 1940's. This table was $7.99! It had water rings and staining, and the finish was bubbling up. It's really funny, on the bottom someone had written with a marker, " Property of Harriet Jones, loaned to my nephew at the rental house, house partially furnished." I guess she was worried her nephew was going to steal her furniture! I lightly sanded the bubbles out of the finish, sprayed two layers of KILZ and then finished it with Krylon glossy white. This table makes a perfect tea table in my bedroom!
I have been painting my kitchen, it is taking forever! I bought Behr paint, and I learned a good lesson - it is better to splurge and get good paint than it is to have to paint everything with 4 coats! Anyways, I am working on curtains and a chandelier for the kitchen, then I will post some photos!
I wish everyone a safe and relaxing weekend...get out and see the beauty of Autumn if you can!
