This is the mirror I picked up at a yard sale for $1.00.  YES!  I did say one dollar.  I could see all kinds of possibilities and none of them was in this color of gold.
But I did imagine this in white hanging in my little girls room.  She loves it!  I love spray paint.
At least I accomplished one project.  I wish the picture turned out better though.  Oh well, it is done.
