Even though I was in the midst of finishing the dining room, which I hope to give you an update on soon, I managed to paint a mirror and change up our back entrance.

This was our fall mantle last year. 

I loved it, but I really like a softer feel for the space. I decided to do some swapping around.

This is the mirror I like best over the mantle, especially for the summer months. It was a thrift score from a couple of years ago. You can see the before and after here. It was one of the first projects/"before and afters" I did when I started my blog.

So, using Rust-Oleum spray paint, I painted the dark brown, rectangular mirror.

I never thought too much about the pretty little detailing. It's much more obvious in the gold shade.

Afterwards, the two mirrors swapped places. The curly one left the back entrance...

...and for now it's over the mantel.

The newly painted rectangular mirror is now hanging in the back entrance off the garage.

I had to look high and low for a small, narrow table. This hallway is tiny.

I finally found this one several years ago at Kirkland's. They still have similar ones in other colors.

For now, this is home, sweet home for the mirror. But, I will go ahead and tell you, I bet it makes an appearance in the newly painted dining room. :-)



  1. I love the changes Kathryn! The mirror you painted in gold paint came out so beautifully--and both spaces look fresh and pretty for summer. Of course I love all the blue and white you used too!
