No, I have been having an affair with a paint brush. Well, that and my new favorite color...Beach Glass by Benjamin Moore.
It all started with a console table in our upstairs hallway. It never really quite felt right. It was a bit too modern for our home. So, I decided I would move the one from our downstairs foyer upstairs.
Well, that left that space a bit naked!
We had a Pottery Barn piece in our basement that used to be in our family room. However, we were no longer fond of the China red color.
I decided to tackle sanding and painting it so we could use it in our foyer. Of course, when I told my sweet #1 what I was doing she exclaimed, "you are sanding and painting a $$$ Pottery Barn piece...dad is going to kill you!" I informed her dad already knew and thought it was in fact a good idea. LOL Plus, I have learned it is easier to ask for forgiveness after the fact.
So, here it is before...
Sorry, not the best pic of it but you get the idea.
And, here it is now...
Okay...here is where you come in. I am having a hard time deciding on the type/shape/color of mirror to replace the current one with. I saw this one at Target and like the fact that it is round, black, a bit distressed with some gold and mimics the handles (colors/shape) on the console. It is just a tad smaller in size then the current mirror.
I have thought about something with a bit more detail too, but was it afraid it might be too formal looking.
Thoughts??? Am waiting to style the console until I have the mirror in place.
