Mirror Mirror on the Wall

This is all about the mirror ... but even more, it's about the continuing change in our home.

This mirror hung above the mantel in our previous home and looked very nice. Still,  I had always wanted to paint it or do something to the frame to give it more character ... I hesitated only because it was New, and I was afraid I would ruin it.

It's in our dining room now and I like the way it expands the space, but the frame still bothered me ... 
 ... So, I pulled it down, took a deep breath, and started distressing it using a fine grit sanding sponge.  I'll admit it was a little scary at first, because there was no going back, but the more I sanded, the more I liked it.

This Distressed look isn't for everyone, but I love it!  
Lesson learned.... This isn't just about changing the mirror, or our home...it's about change in me. 

Who do I have to thank?  All of You, who continually inspire me with your wonderful projects!


Have a Blessed Day!
