Painted Mirror ~ I fixed it!

I decided to give the mirror one more try to fit it back in the frame and it worked!

I shared some frame painting makeovers I have been working on to add a few more hints of colour to our home here. After I painted the frame, Benjamin Moore Ocean Spray, I couldn't get the mirror back in. Thinking it would probably break couldn't hurt, I gave the frame a little stretch and it popped in.

Now we have a little colour and reflection happening at our sink. I really like that it reflects the new board and batten and the barn photos. Not bad for a $3 yard sale mirror and leftover paint. The backsplash needs a second coat of white until I save up for subway tile, but I really like how it looks. Do you have a window over your kitchen sink, or something else?

What a great color on that mirror. And a good idea too, the light can bounce off and make you feel as though you have a window.

Very pretty! I love the color - that's the color I was picturing in my head when I did my mirror redo (thanks for commenting by the way!)
