Un miroir pour la cheminée

Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Uh, oh!!!!!
This week I was searching for just the right mirror to go above the fireplace.
Everything crashing down like that has happened so many times.
The only place I was searching was through all the stuff I have.
This was my first option but after surfing the web (for quite some time)
 I decided the mirror needed to be taller.
I found this one but it was a bit  too tall. 
So...I went at it with my trusty craft knife,
it was unfortunate that it broke in the middle.
However, it went back together ok.
I'm happy with the result.
It fits the space.
It's grand but not overwhelmingly grand!
The fireplace needed to be a tiny bit higher so I added a dark marble base for it to sit on.
It's not quite finished.
And because you asked Shannon...the paint finish on the couch did look ok in the daylight!
And you said you avoid painting things in bad light but funnily enough 
I sometimes think things turn out better when I paint in bad light! 😂
So here's the space without the kitchen walls.
Now I'm working on just the right sort of little coffee table.
I'm enjoying seeing this room coming together one piece of furniture at a time!

I already want to live in this little house...and have all of you visit me there!

  7. Great work with the mirror! Mercedes - very cleverly deconstructed and resized. I think the proportions now are just right and the antique gold adds an elegant contrast to the white and blue. And yay - your painting worked! That’s awesome!
