Pink Shabby Mirror

Well I thought for sure after all my complaining about rainy weather, ole karma would have it snow on me this weekend! But actually, Sunday was quite pleasant and I got some outside time with my horse which was much-needed!

I also had some great family time and even bought a mirror at a thrift shop and redid it! Unfortunately I did not get a "before" photo. Imagine an 1990's oak mirror with roses etched on it.

At first I thougth I'd paint it white, but then I envisioned it in a pale pink and distresesd.

I really like how it turned out. The shape of the mirror is just angular enough to take away from the feminine pink and roses.

It was hard to capture the shade of pink (I mixed it myself) with my camera. I think it'd be darling in a little girl's bedroom. The mirror will be for sale in the shop as soon as I can get a carload down there. I'm runnin' out of free time these days!

I have also recently snagged a variety of linens. They are piling up in my "to-do" pile!

I adore the pale pink striped fabric, I believe they are actually a set of placemats. I think a few pillows are in order, to possibly match the mirror. And the rose sheets might be paired with some rustic burlap and made into lavender sachets. Yep, that "to-do" list just keeps getting longer!

This vintage white linen is starting to fall a part a bit but I just love it's texture and detail. I plan to keep it myself not sure what to do with it yet. But I love it.

That's what matters, right? I'm going through a major spring cleaning stage right now (more on that later) and decided that I'm really only keeping things that are family heirlooms, special gifts, or things that I love.

Between Tara and I we hope to get some updated photos of the All That Jazz Vintage space posted later this week.

Happy Monday everyone!

{Sares}~ I hung the mirror to photograph it but it won't be staying with me....or I'll get too attached, hee hee! ;-) I am kind of hoping I come across another one because it was a fun and simple makeover!
