Mirror, mirror on the wall....

When we bought our new home in November my only complaint
was that it didn't come with white woodwork.
I'm a freak for white woodwork!

Ahem, I am in love with our house in every
other way....and so white woodwork will come with time.
In the meantime, Branmuffin and I have painted so many things
except our woodwork, white...or black...or some other shade.

I am almost finished with a wall in our master bedroom.
It's fairly long and I wanted to put my DIY chair along the wall.
So, I decided to paint and assemble a bunch of mirrors
on it in a random pattern.  All of the mirrors were painted
either black or white.

Here's our kitchen table full of mirrors,
work in progress, be careful...we paint nearly everything that
walks in our doors!

A couple of shots of the final product, 
sorry some are a bit dark, I'm trying to photograph without

 ....remember the one on the far right I got
for my Good Will Christmas gift...

....ahhh, I bit you see what's missing?
I need a nice pop of color for the little
table....or I don't know, a different table...there might be too many
legs in the mix.....

....I told you it wasn't done yet, 
I'm still searching for the perfect pop of color...
maybe a flower arrangement and some books,
I don't know....

I've also read and have seen over and over
that a piece of abstract art can really tie a place together
via color, etc.

In our entryway there is a blank wall that needed 
something, some color or just to tie in with my
crazy IKEA rugs.

What do you think of this?

Home Goods...still lovin' that store!

Nice picture ;) Home Goods is the greatest store on earth... My entire hallway wall is a WIP- we've lived her for 5 1/2 years and I still have yet to get that wall lined with frames and photographs... I should really hire you! I love what you've done with the place


You inspire me!!
Love the mirrors on the wall with your S & C...
Tatum and Turner in the background of the pictures make me smile...

I can't believe how well that painting complements the rug! They look like they came together!
