A KitchenAid mixer that was given to me by my very sweet mother-in-law a couple of years ago. Let me just say this - making cookies with this mixer was AWESOME! One bowl, no mess..that's my kind of baking. I can't believe I waited so long to use it!
Onto the before & after...I found this mirror at a local haunt. It was in the window for a couple of weeks and I finally stopped in to see it up close & personal. I've been looking for a mirror for my Mom's guest room and love the shape of this one. It is very old and had a few cracks in the wood, so I knew I'd have to paint it.
I repaired the cracks (on the four corners) & lightly sanded the whole thing.
Here it is after being painted with Dover White by Behr & glazed with Valspar Mocha. The spot on the mirror is from aging and actually one of the reasons I really like this piece.
Love the scrolling detail.
I'll snap a picture after she hangs it with the dresser that we painted - it's looking good in there. Now, I'm off to wrap up this Christmas weekend!
I'm linky partying with Remodelaholic - check it out.
