Estate Sale Oval Mirror Redo!

Remember the Oval Mirror I bought a few weeks ago at an estate sale?  Well the end result far
 
 
 
exceeded my expectations.   So much so, that my original thoughts of selling it, are now gone : )
 
 
  Much to John's delight (that's sarcasm there folks) we are keeping this little lady.  After cleaning,
 
 
priming, painting and sanding I am pleased to show you my new love.

Do you love her as much as me?!  So glad you guys talked me out of making her
 
 into a chalkboard like I originally intended to!!!  What do you think?

  11. Great transformation of this mirror! I love how those old mirror frames look with a freshening up - the chunky lines of them are so funky. Thank you so much for linking this up at the Get Your DIY On Fall Challenge: Spray Paint! We hope to see you come on back over this evening (7pm EST) and bring along a chalkboard project!!
