A Mirror Restored


When I spied this bevelled mirror in the op shop for $4.99 I knew I couldn’t pass it up.

A couple of hours with some paint stripper and a sander revealed a gorgeous oak frame.


It had been stained darker, but I used a clear varnish to keep it a bit lighter.


I hung it on the back of the front door so I can check my reflection for paint smudges on my cheek or forgotten paint brushes tucked into my ponytail before I leave the house!


A bargain at $5!

      Thanks Mixy!
      I love my purple door too, although it needs a new coat of paint and I’m wondering whether to paint it a different colour?
