Mirror Mirror on the Wall - One Room Challenge Week 3
I feel like I did a lot of work on the bathroom this past week. And yet, nothing seems to be finished! I did finish painting the walls, which I shared last week.
I have found a few spots on the walls that I missed but I haven't brought myself to bringing the paint back out just yet.
I started to hang the shelves behind the toilet. What a headache that was. Let's just say there are double the holes needed in my freshly painted and patched walls.
So I moved onto the mirror.
Here is it is before:
It was black. And I really didn't mind the black. I just wanted a new fresh look for this bathroom.
I was hoping to return the mirror to it's original gold color (or something similar). Here is my inspiration board...
I started with Rub n Buff but it was more than I wanted to deal with. The mirror is quite detailed and I didn't like how it went on over the black. So then I did some research online for the best gold spray paint, which led me to this color...
It was bright.
I kind of liked it. But wasn't completely sold.
So....I dug out more paint.
Next it was on to white.
Nope. Not the right look.
Let's try bronze...
Ugh. What to do?!
Well, how about buy more paint!?
What a headache.
And I'm not loving any color. I finally realized that maybe it's the mirror that I don't love.
So I started searching for a simple gold mirror and came up empty handed.
I did find this fun zinc mirror from Ballard Designs...
But I think it changes the feel of the bathroom, giving it a rustic feel.
So here I sit with an unfinished mirror. It's hanging in the bathroom with painters tape still on it. This is what the bathroom looks like today...
I wish I had a finished product to share this week! Unfortunately, I have made a few baby steps and haven't crossed much off my list! Here's hoping the next week brings me better luck.
What would you do with this mirror? Please share!
