UncategorizedDay 18: 31 Days of Finishing Rooms October 18, 2011Hey guys! I’m back for a quick post today. Not feeling so good today and student mid-terms are tomorrow. So, it’s been a little rough around here. But all is good 🙂 Thanks for the advice on the lamps. It’s going to be a while until I get the nightstands. I’ve been searching for the right ones to redo for over a year now and have come up with nothing. So, it looks like we will make them. But they will be white. So, I think mercury glass is the right way to go. It will be interesting. I found one tutorial where it was done on the outside for an aged silver effect that reminded me of mercury glass. But maybe I shouldn’t have spoken that so soon! It may turn out more silvery than reflective mercury glass, but we will see! Today, I want to share a quick bargain with you guys that I will be putting to use in the bedroom. There is an empty wall right by the closet and the door. It is in need of a full length mirror! I’ve looked for one for a while, but they can be so expensive. Then, I found this one at Goodwill… …for $4. Yes, that’s right…$4! Now that I can afford! I like the wood color, but it’s actually not real wood. It’s kind of a plastic material. I would assume this is why it was $4, but hey, it’ll work! With primer, paint will stick to it and it has a real-looking wood grain. I’m thinking a shade of gray dry brushed with some white. Any suggestions? Be back tomorrow!
