All growing up, at the bottom of my Grandmother’s stairs, was the fanciest mirror I had ever seen. I coveted that mirror. It was like a princess would have, I thought.
Fast forward years later, me and my husband go up to help my Grandma move. We are going through things, making piles. Keep, Sell, and Give Away. I watch her try to decide with this mirror that I had always admired growing up. Where does it end up? Give away pile!
I ask Gramma if I can have it and she says she doesn’t care one way or the other. I ask her if I can paint it, she says sure.
Now, I don’t have a proper before picture as I should. But picture a regal looking golden mirror, lots of curves and details. Then imagine it being plastic. This princess mirror I had thought was beautiful growing up wasn’t so much my style now. My mom thought it was a little tacky. I decided to paint it using a variety of chalk paint colors. Paris Grey and Duck Egg from ASCP and Destin Gulf Green from CeCe Caldwell. I love it.
It is so much more “me” now!
