Mirror, Mirror~Just Who is the Thriftiest of Them All?

 

     Slim picken’s here at Murphy Grace’s home this week. I did start working on the desk that I picked up on Saturday night.

     With that in mind, it was off to my favorite paint store, Kelly Moore, to wade through their stacks and stacks of mis-tints. But wait! What was that sitting right outside their door? A big mirror, looks like it might have been a dresser mirror or something.

     So I ask Mike, my Kelly Moore connection, what the deal was with the mirror. He says that he doesn’t know it was just there when he opened that morning. Then he says the magic words, “You take it.”

     My new mirror, just awaiting transformation.

     Mike was really in a giving mood and also threw in a color wheel and a Cabot paints fandeck with my mis-tints purchase. He is getting to know me well, if I was single…….

You know you're in trouble when the people at the paint store know you by name and you aren't a paint contractor! Have fun with that mirror!

I am soooo covetous of your mirror....days past I would have popped out that mirror and used the frame for something else, but I've been experimenting w/desilvering mirror to get that wonderful old appearance of wonderful old mirrors...that big piece of glass w/that wonderful header-ed frame has trumeau written all over her....have fun! Love.
