Mirror Mirror

So we had a hot and sunny weekend here in L.A.   It was in the 90's and it felt like summer started. Now that it's Monday we have clouds! What gives with the weather lately?  Anyway, I found this mirror at a thrift store for $1.35 and I decided to paint it from gold to white. Here are the before and afters. I also went to the Festival of Wheat yesterday and took some pics of all the beautiful colors. I hope you are having a great Monday! xoxo


 Mirror, mirror, who's the fairest puppy of them all!

 Not bad for a $1.35!

The Festival of Wheat 
I'm always inspired by color and this festival was a rainbow of happy colors.

OMG! What an amazing mirror, and it looks SPECTACULAR after you changed it to white! Is it difficult to paint? What about for a girly blonde like me? ;) I also had to laugh at your hilarious comment about your cute dog, because it really looks like he's saying that! haha so adorable. Also the vibrant colours at The Festival of Wheat are just stunning....

What a great bargain! I love that you painted it gold. Makes it look that much more like an antique.
Thanks so much for the comment on my blog!
