My First Painted Mirror & Fall Fireplace!

It turned out so pretty didn’t it? I didn’t take a before picture because I know you can imagine it gold with flaking areas on it. The picture on the bottom is of my dad and me, I was born in April so I think I’m about 4months old there♥
I hung the mirror in my entryway, now Mr. K can put on his baseball caps and have a mirror to see if they are on right! He’s very happy with it!
What a difference a mirror makes in a room!

I’ve also included a better picture of my mantel…It needed some height so I added the small, wooden box I had.
and here is an over all picture, I fought the idea of the wood stove for a couple years until the electric heating bill got to be a little to much. So I gave in two years ago and he was right it cut the heating bill in half and on a very cold winter night it is so cozy warm in here. That brown brick still upsets me to even look at it.LOL Not my choice, believe me but the X’s!
I’m linking up to Kath’s Faded Charm for White Wednesday and Domestically Speaking power of paint party! Stop by to see all the fantastic projects these talented ladies have accomplished!
Well, I work tonight and have to get something done around here! Have a great day, it’s been rainy here for at least three days but we are promised a great, sunny weekend!

The Mirror looks lovely, I love how you have it hung beneath your hooks. Very pretty, and the garland is a nice touch. Thank you for stopping by my blog, and for your nice comment. tami from the high street cottage

I love it all, Rondell! The pip berries draped across the peg board is such a neat idea. Thanks for the inspiration.

Have you ever thought of painting the brick???

Hope you're well!

I never thought of painting the brick like Colleen suggested but I really think that's a great idea! It would look beautiful white. But once you paint it, you can't go back...

Love the mirror makeover. Perfect!

Hi Rondell,

I had to stop by and say hi! I haven't "talked" to you in a long time! That's a great makeover on the mirror! Hope you're doing well!

Have a great Wednesday!

Oh, I meant to tell you that Jason's aunt painted her brick a whitewashed muted white and it was so pretty. But like someone said, you can't go back so you have to be sure!

Your fireplace looks so cozy. We are always freezing in the winter despite a high heating bill and have thought about a stove insert. Glad to hear that it really helps.

Hi Rondell,
I love your creative talent! It is a very welcoming area, beautiful job! The mantle looks fantastic too! Oh, so know what you mean about those heating bills... ;)
Have a great evening!

I love your entryway! The mirror is awesome.
Your brick would look great painted white with your color scheme. I just painted mine recently and like it much better than the red. I love your wood mantle too.
