Brightening Up

I decided that now was as good a time as ever to paint the mirror in my living room, especially since I still had paint left over from the downstairs bath (same color I used for the motley crew: Benjamin Moore’s “Healing Aloe”) The perfect solution, I think, to tie everything in the room together and give it a tone on tone look. Here is the mirror before:

And here it is now:

I think the lighter shade gives it a softer, more cottage-y feeling.  Do you?
Here’s a tip: if you’re looking to buy a light-colored or white-framed mirror, don’t. For whatever the reason, they are (at least in my experience) usually more expensive. Save yourself some cash by getting a less expensive mirror and painting it to whatever color your heart desires.

You might also have noticed that the sconces on either side of the mirror are gone. I sprayed them white but may be moving them to another place entirely. Check back in later this week to see what I’ve got up my sleeve as their replacement.
