Hi everyone! I hope your week is off to a great start. We are on vacation this week, so I hope to relax and also catch up on some blogging posts I have been meaning to share with you. For now, I want to show you a fun paint project I did that has made a big impact.
A ways back I scored a major find on Craigslist. It was a vintage Henredon dresser and the price was right at only $200.
What sweetened the deal even more was that it came with two beautiful faux bamboo mirrors. It is so hard to find a set of matching vintage mirrors, so I could not believe my luck! Here they are.
I didn’t have room for them in our bedroom above the dresser, so I had long-term plans to paint them and use them in our dining room. We recently painted out dining room a really deep purple, almost an eggplant color and I opted to paint them a very light shade of lavender. Bold color choices, I know!
All in all I am very pleased with the results. The mirrors really complement the other pieces and accent colors I have going on in the dining room. The room is starting to turn out pretty glamorous considering I found most of it on Craigslist!! See you can have the look for less!
What do you think? Have you ever sacrificed a vintage piece in order to make it your own or are you a purist who thinks it should be kept in its original condition?
Until next time.
