Furniture re-do

I SO wish I had taken a before picture of this mirror. I found it at DI for about $25 and it is really well made. Before it was painted, it was a dark wood. I wanted something for our bedroom that was unique, so my dear husband painted it turquoise for me and then I antiqued it with a little black glaze. I got the idea from a very very awesome blog called all things thrifty. Check it out and get some great ideas of your own! Furniture re-purposing is easy!

A little decorating fun.....

I needed something to hang above our bed, so I made these canvas paintings with three different stencils. You can't see it from here, but there are streaks of blue showing through the white paint. It helps to subtly tie it in with the blue in the room.
