Well today I wanted to show you my beautiful new mirror! Years and years ago I bought a rusty old mirror from a car boot - I can't even remember how much I paid but I know it wasn't much (a pound or two).
I took it home and had no idea what to do with it. I was still living at home with parents and it was too big for my room. It was covered in cobwebs and the tarnished copper looked horrid but I loved the design.
I kept fighting my parents not to throw it out and it was relegated to the shed. Then when I moved out we found it again and my parents suggested we actually do something with it.
That was a year and a half ago, but on Sunday I stopped in on my mum and she said she had a present for me! Guess what I found....
This beautifully refurbished, powder coated mirror! My dad knew someone at work who could do it, and they charged £30, which my dad kindly paid for!
It's a shame I don't have a 'before' picture so you could see just how dramatic the transformation is!
It is fantastic and looks stunning in our bedroom - absolutely perfect...
Soon we will hang it on the wall - I think above the stool here - as it's the only big enough space for it to go and should make a good impact!
I love it so much! Just goes to show sometimes it's a good idea to hold onto things, even if they seem unuseable! Thank you mum & dad!
