Don't you love giving a piece of trash a new home?
I love it and would prefer to do that than buy new any day.
Every thing in this post had years of wear and had already lived a lifetime before
I acquired them.
Many people would never give them a chance to grace their
Maybe many reading this post would even wonder what I could possibly see in them.
Like this old scratched up mirror propped up here inside this old frame.
This Summer while shopping a flea market with my daughters, I saw this
dilapidated old pink dresser.
I fell hard...not for the dresser itself, but for the awesome aging mirror it had.
You can't tell in these photos, but the mirror has beautiful veining and crackling.
I didn't bring it home because I needed another chest of drawers,
because I DON"T.
I brought it home strictly for the mirror.
Then there's this light fixture in my bath.
I finally got it hung after years of tripping over it no matter where I stored it.
I love that someone painted it pink
I love that it is scrolly
I love that it is hopelessly old-fashioned
and I love that it came with a friend!
This one escaped the pink paint and has it's original finish.
It is smaller in scale and hangs over the bathroom sink.
I fell in love with this style of light when I first saw some hanging in Robin's (Magnolia Pearl)
kitchen years ago in a magazine.
About a year after seeing the magazine feature of her beautiful home, I found these in a
cardboard box at a yard sale and there they sat until recently when I finally
had them re-wired and hung.
for all those who have ever looked into this scratched up, chippy little mirror...
thank you for passing it on so I could add it to my own collection of 'new to me's'.
