Cheap Second Hand Mirror I'm Spray-Painting Turquoise  

The man who lived beneath me at my last place went trash-picking regularly. He'd find wonderful things, and anything rose-related he would give me. I made him take money for some things, though, and for this mirror I gave him $10. I'm using "Lagoon" colored paint to color it turquoise, and I adore the roses in the frame. It still needs a second coat and sealant, but I wanted to show it off.


Unfortunately, when my mother visited last week she stepped on it while it was drying and broke the actual mirror. But it's easily replaced, and mom has offered to pay to have one cut to the right size. So I'm not exactly upset.

The actual color is closer to that in the first picture than the second.





 
So, what do you think?  Anyone?

I am vast, I contain multitudes--or at least a multitude of accounts on a multitude of sites! And I'm cross-posting over from one of them right now!

Thank you! We are finally having sunny days again, so I think this week I'll be able to finish it up with the second coat and sealant. And then...I wait until mom has the money to give me for a new mirror. See: her breaking the one that is in the frame and under the paper and tape atm.

Well. I also have a brown small bookcase that I'm going to spray paint to match, and a writing desk that I plan to put under the mirror. Sorta like a vanity.

Thank you! I thought that I made a good move painting it. See this comment for plans on what I'm going to paint to match it: http://fire-and-a-rose.livejournal.com/1487957.html?thread=8523605#t8523605.
