FRAMED !!!


Good morning everyone !!!

While I was going through my stash of mirrors to put over the mantel - I found this frame I had forgotten about 

and thought with a little work it would be perfect for the guest room 

I gave it a quick coat of silver " wash " about half paint - half water  ( I wanted to keep some of this color so that it would look aged ) 


After hanging it up - it looked a little boring so I placed a narrow mirror I had in the center of it





And that's what I did last night when insomnia hit !

Have a wonderful day everyone - I intend to spend much of mine floating in the pool - it's hot hot hot here and I'm loving every second of it ( I am NOT ready for Fall in the least ! ) 

Much love,

Sharing at these fabulous parties!

  3. Leave it to you to do something constructive when you have insomnia. I'm more prone to turning on the tv and binge watching episodes of The Nanny.

  7. You have a lot more energy than I do! When insomnia strikes, which is often, I end up watching shows I've recorded. The frame looks gorgeous! Just a thought...have a mirror cut to fit it.

  10. I like the frame in a frame. I am not as enthusiastic about the heat as you are. I plan on staying in the a/c tomorrow and hoping the cold front pushes through on time. I know the weather folks are saying it will be another snowy winter. Thankfully, there are indicators that it won't be the frozen mess we had last year. Bring on the snow!!
