Typeset letters and a sunburst style mirror is what I used for my latest living room update!
This past weekend we went to Fort Morgan, Alabama! Unfortunately, it rained most of the time but I found a way to entertain myself. Old Time Pottery!!! I’ve only been able to go there a few times since we don’t leave anywhere near one. I picked up some letters to do a project that I’ve had on my mind for awhile. My daughter had this mirror in her room and decided it didn’t fit her décor anymore so out it went! I knew immediately what I wanted to do with it but didn’t know where I wanted to put it.
I saw a picture in a Ballard Designs catalog where they used their typeset letters and a sunburst style mirror as the “O.” I recently took down the picture I had hanging over the piano and replaced it with a mirror. There was already a nail on the wall so I just hung the mirror there to see if I like it. It was lower than I would have put it but I really liked it. It just seemed to be a little bare over it and I thought of the “HOME” art work!
I picked up the letters at Old Time Pottery for $2 each! Now, my dilemma is, do I paint the letters? or do I paint the mirror? or do I leave it the way it is? What do you think? Help me out here now.
I like hanging mirrors opposite windows to help reflect light back into the room. This one is opposite the french doors going out onto the screen porch. It helps to brighten up this area a little.
This painting is a recent yard sale find for $10. I love the blue!
So whatca think? Should I or shouldn’t I paint? If you like the lettered art work, check out my EAT art in the kitchen!
