I Love Saturday (sung in my best Erasure-esque voice)

It's the day that TONS of things get posted on Craigslist. For cheap. Case in point: huge 36 x 48 inch mirror.

Price? $15. Love the dentil molding detail on the top, and the fact that it can reflect my dirty trash can. Because who wouldn't love that.

Hit it with a coat of black paint. Not too hard - glass can break, you know. Followed by some sandpaper. Not done tweaking the arrangement yet, mostly because at some point (umm...tonight?) I'll be pulling out fall stuff, but for 10 minutes plus dry time? Works for me.

  1. Awesome. Love your blog, your decorating, and your humor. Perhaps we are twins separated at birth? I mean decorating blogs are great and all, but too many of em have just a bit above, um, zero personality. And well, I'm all about personality. Perhaps.

    peace.

  3. Once again...great find and great idea...I thought of you as I spray painted all my picture frames today ONE color for only $6.78! A Becky find and Idea!!! Beats buying all new picture frames...but I can't say I was all that savvy...spent $179.00 on paint this weekend and didn't get any samples...well lets just say $75.00 will be thrown away since it was soooooo the wrong color! Right color $50.00 later...owell, at least I made up for it on the picture frames......

  4. But what's most impressive is that you spelled "dentil" right. You nerd you. NO-body gets that one.
