My flea market mirror is finished and hung.....finally!
Rick and I finally got that mirror finished and hung up! I have a few more holes in the wall than I wanted so I guess I can get my spackle out! The mirror was much bigger once we got it on the wall! The whole thing measures about 44 inches tall and about 36 inches wide. It looks nice and I am very happy with it. The mirror frame I bought at a flea market for $18.00 and the mirror was 30.00. I had to buy a little molding to put around the inside edge so the mirror would not go anywhere! I painted and aged it to match the mirror and Rick took his brad nailer and nailed it in place. I just fell in love with the detail and the color. I did not repaint it, I simply cleaned it the best I could and put a coat of water-based poly on it to keep the paint from flaking completely off.
