Remember the itsybitsy bathroom reno I showed you HERE a couple days ago. If you don't remember than you MAY have bigger problems than I do. Just kidding, but seriously, if you haven't seen it, it is cute. I think! Even if I can never find my keys. Or if I currently want to spray paint everything that's not moving. I'm sure I have tons of issues!
SO SORRY FOR THE POOR QUALITY PHOTOS, MY POWDER ROOM IS TINY AND DOESNT' HAVE ANY NATURAL LIGHT.
I've had that mirror since before we got married. When I was in college (don't get all excited, it was for just a short while, then I married and started popping out babies...two at a time!) I did some interior design work at a furniture store my mother's friend owned. I fell in LOVE with this mirror at the time. I was about 18 so um it's a bit over 20 years old. SHEEESH. I'm old. Anyway, I loved the bow. A. Lot. It was an expensive "furniture store" mirror from Carolina Mirror company and I might add, this little sucker weighs a TON and has pretty beveled edges around the mirrored portion. Even with my discount, I think I paid 90.00 for it (I know it was a little less than a $100). I think that's expensive, even now! ;-) For 20 years it adorned 2 different powder rooms in the two homes we've owned, showing off it's slightly aged, gold toned finish.
Enter 2010 and me with my current obsession with Rustoleum Hammered Spray Paint. After I RENEWED the bathroom light fixture and the toilet paper holder and the towel holder, the mirror looked a bit sad. She wanted a little face lift. (Don't we all after about 20 years past our glorious youth!) I had handsome Mr. Whimages take her down, I unscrewed her with the drill gun (girls, if you can't use the drill gun, get a lesson. NOW!) Painted her pretty little face, screwed her back together and VOILA' she's bright and shiny and looks totally different, sorta like Heidi Montag, you know her own mother may not recognize her! Since I did the oil rubbed bronze on the other fixtures, she needed some Heirloom White to give her some contrast and make her stand out amongst her rich friends. What do you think? The powder room is almost done it's little update! You are probably wondering what's this mess down here in this last photo, right? WELL, that's where we originally had our built in entertainment center, the TV was there and book cases on either side. We "built" it out into our garage about 7 years ago or so to give us some extra space. Since the new flat screen came and Mr. Whimages built the TV cabinet out of the wood he took out of the built in, we've been trying to decide WHAT to do with the area...stay tuned it's finally progressing! Notice "FLAT KITTY" in this last photo, she's the little stuffed toy that looks like she was run over by the garbage truck. She is actually the love of our little lady boxer, Macy's life! She's checking out the progress of the new built in.
