Bathroom Mirror Update

Remember the fabulous mirror I found on the side of the road last weekend?

I knew as soon as I found it I had found my bathroom mirror, so I couldn’t wait to get going. I finally found the time today, and I’m super pleased.

This is the bathroom the way it was before I swapped the mirror out. I love the old claw foot tub with its gold claws, and of course the original 1898 hardwood floors.


I sanded it down well, put some paper and tape over the mirror, and then spray painted the heck out of it. I lost count, but I am guessing it was 6 or 7 coats.


It’s up in the bathroom now and I LOVE it. Love it. And once I find the perfect old dresser to turn into a sink, it will be complete.

      thanks Lisa! I was so pleased to find it:) and you're right - the size is great - with the bathroom being rather long, the wider mirror (vs the old one) seems to add 'room' to the room:)
