gothic frame…

I would love to find an old gothic window, but, after years of looking, I’m just as happy with my 4.5’ mirror--a xmas gift from my son.

I removed the mirror and painted the frame white.   it’s heavy, so I put it on a table, and added my urn of flowers.  the gothic shaped mirror won’t go to waste.  my husband is making a simple frame for it, so I’ll end up with two gothic pieces from this one gift.  makes the price seem not so bad.

  2. I love that! I also love where you placed it, so it mirrors the window shape. MY Hobby Lobby never has cool stuff like that! ;-)

  6. It's the perfect fit for above that cute little cabinet. The closest Hobby Lobby is about 6 or 7 hours away from us, so I haven't had the chance to do more than a quick run through the store (with my husband impatiently waiting in the car). By the looks of that window, they have some pretty cool stuff!

  10. I just saw this piece at Hobby Lobby and thought about doing the same thing. I just didn't have a place to hang it. Yours looks wonderful and so pretty above the table. xo, Sherry

  13. Oh Lynn it's fabulous! It is even more special since your son gave it to you. I still have a wine rack my son gave me many years ago, I cherish it because it was his first big boy present! I can't wait to see what the handyman does with the mirror!

  16. Lynn, this is GORGEOUS! Those bright colors from the flowers look so great in front of the white frame. I'm glad you are able to get two projects out of this one mirror (hooray for handy husbands!).
