Good Thursday Morning to Everyone! I am so thrilled with our weather. It has been so nice and cool during the day and nights are wonderful without the air-conditioners going. But, still no rain for our neighbor...Texas! Believe it or not, I'm moving things around again in our home. I can't seem to get what I'm looking for. Oh well...
You know how I love to thrift shop and haggling is my speciality. This pretty below, was found in Florida some years back, and it was hideous...an awful brown and stained. I don't have a before picture, because I started working on it some time ago and finished the painting before the move. Let me tell you this...I was blogging and went over to Scarlett's blog this weekend, and she had a dressing table/desk with the square mirror. Check it out at: scarlett loves elvis
I still have to do a bit of stressing. I found the stool at a garage sale that had a leather cushion torn, stained, and smelled. My cost...free! The lady was only too happy to get rid of it! A perfect fit!
If your click on the pic, you can see the fabric I used to cover it. (please overlook the junk). I had to recover it again because the cushion was a little too high for the mirror. I ended up using only batting on a new cut of 3/4" ply-board. It worked out well and anyone sitting on it can now use the mirror. I tried to change the mirror with a square one, but it didn't work, so I'm stuck with this one.
Look at the little lamp shade, these are the colors in the room. The coverlet on the white iron bed is a colorful patchwork quilt, with the pinks, greens; all pastels. White sheers with a long white scarf are the window treatments. I can't show you the room now because it is all torn apart from my changing. I will show it all when done.
Ideas on the mirror will definitely help me to get the cob webs out of my brain today....one of those idle -brain days! LOL.
Thought I'd share this with you and I promised Scarlett I would post it. Here it is Scarlett!
Have a Wonderful Day Dear Friends! Love you!
