Mirror mirror on the wall

I mentioned to you all that my niece is building a house.... well the day is finally here and she has moved in! Yipee, lucky girl, beautiful home!   I spent the last couple of days at her home trying to get it decorated.  We have alot more to do and I will show you the what it looks like when we are all done but until then I am going to tease you with bits and pieces.
 I showed you this mirror awhile ago. I purchased it at Goodwill for 20.00.  It is huge, heavy and I LOVE the detail in it. Of course it needs a remake, this looks too messy to me.
A little closer look.  This is an ok finish, just not what we needed.  Maybe a little more class, richness.
Here it is sprayed with ORB.  For those that don't know ORB is greatness in a can, stands for Oil Rubbed Bronze.  It is really pretty, dark brown with the tiniest bit of sparkle but sometimes it needs a little umph!
 
So maybe a little silver rub will do the trick.
 
Ahh, look at the detail and the rub really pulls it out.  I  am not sure the picture does it justice, but this turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!

 This is the stuff we used, but not this color. We used the silver.  This stuff can be bought at Hob Lob.  It's only 3.00 and it amazing!!! You need to get some if you don't have it, it really transform most anything!

And look at this faucet!  Isn't it just gorgeous!!! And the frame coordinated really well with it.
Just one more look!  Perfect!  When can you pick up a 20.00 mirror for your bathroom??? I can't wait to show you some more. Keep checking back for new projects!

Hey Laura,
Love your niece's bathroom in her new house. The $20.00 mirror is amazing. It's really beautiful. That was really, really a great find. I'm looking forward to seeing more of the house and more creative things that you have done. For me, this 'sneak peek' into this fabulous house has me wanting to see more!
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
