Before & After Mirror!

Hey guys tonight Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick is hosting a before and after and I thought it would be fun to join in on the fun.  I mentioned to you all that my niece has built as house and  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.
 This is just over the toilet.



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!

I love orb and run-n-buff both! They are great to have in your arsenal. :)
your mirror and your vignette look super! Doesn't it just make you smile when you walk past it?

Quick question on the Rub-n-Buff, do you need to seal it? I'm thinking of doing the same thing to a mirror for our guest bath that we just spray painted. Thanks!
