Mirror, Mirror

About 2 months ago, I bought these two mirrors at a yard sale. I got both, plus an iron wall hanging for $7, I think. I knew exactly what I wanted to do with the mirrors when I found them, so I'm not sure why it's taken me 2 months to do this.

Here's a before of the mirrors in all their golden glory.

I spray painted them with Krylon Satin Black and then to kind of copy the Run-n-Buff I've seen lately in blogland, I dry brushed some silver metallic craft paint over the frames to bring out the texture. I LOVE how they turned out.

Here they are in my now complete powder room downstairs. I got the lighthouse clock from a friend for $5. I was helping her clean things out and saw this clock, still in it's packaging that she'd gotten as a wedding gift 7 years ago! I thought it would look great in my lighthouse themed bathroom and I really like it!

The small painting you see over the toilet is another Thomas Kinkade lighthouse print. I bought it on clearance at Joann's and picked up a frame too (they were 40% off!). It complements my larger Thomas Kinkade lighthouse next to it nicely.

I'm so excited to finally have a complete room! I'm getting close in my loft/play room. Those bins are taking FOREVER - and I'm slow. Hopefully, I finish those up this weekend and can turn my attention to my clock wall. It's gonna be great!
