And a mirror to match!



Last weekend I braved the heat to go to the flea market in search of treasure. I didn't find much, but while browsing one stand I saw a mirror leaning under the table and went in for a closer look. I was an old, narrow gold ornate framed beveled mirror. Gorgeous, but the top was broken and hanging off. "I'll give you that for $5" she said, apparently noticing my skeptical look. "Uh, ok." Five bucks? Yeah, for that I can deal with a little "character". So, I glued the top back together as best I could (admittedly, not that clean a repair) and painted it to match my little armoire. I'm liking it.


I also just hung up this bed curtain, which I got at a yard sale a couple weeks ago for $2.  I have been finding some real bargains lately! 


Taking these pics reminded me that one of my goals for 2012 is to work on the master bedroom.  This bed is crying out for a whitewash, isn't it?  And now that I'm looking, so are my lamps.  And I could definitely do with some new ruffly white bedding.  It's always something, isn't it?  Hope you are all staying cool!

Tracy oh my gosh. What a beautiful bedroom. I really really liked what you had done with the jewelry armoire and to add a mirror to it makes it look like the perfect ensemble. Love the aqua color. I also like the bed curtain. I'd like to have one in my room. So pretty.

they're a match made in heaven. Works perfectly with the jewellery chest. I didn't realize it was so big, but now I can see it relative to your bed...wow.

Your bedroom is looking beautiful. I agree that you should whitewash the bed, but girlfriend, you are creating a room envious of any top of the line B&B's. Great job! Connie :)

Great find on the mirror, the vendor must have had heat stroke $5?...I can't believe you braved the heat! Yep, a white wash on that bed frame and you're done, everything else looks perfect!!

Hi Tracy, thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a kind comment.

I LOVE your mirror, it's absolutely fab and you picked a great colour for it. I can't believe you only paid $5 for it! The mirror with your cabinet make an awesome set!

That is the coolest headboard. You find the neatest things. I know, I know, this post is about the mirror and jewelry armoire, both which look amazing, but I am in love with that headboard.
