old mirror…

this is linked to faded charm’s white wednesday 118.
the mirror finish has cracking and worn spots, something only time can produce.  its surprisingly heavy, so it’s sitting on a table with a chandelier in front of it. –doubles the light.

you can see some of the imperfections of the mirror.

and last weekend, I shopped for  white pumpkins, but at $24.99 each,  I decided to paint 2 old orange pumpkins ivory.

they turned out great and I placed one on my stool, in my entry.   I’ll show the second pumpkin later.

    I have so wanted to do this- was the paint just regular old house paint- acrylic, water based???

    It looks fantastic!

  6. Love how the mirror turned out and looks great sitting next to your standing chandelier:-) Great idea for the pumpkin also....i've been looking for white ones, but can't seem to find any. A little paint goes a long ways...
