Have you ever had something that you knew HAD potential?
I found this large clock at a thrift store a few weeks ago. Â As you can tell, it wasn’t in working order and the glass was missing. Â I wasn’t sure if I could salvage it, but it was cheap,Â had an interesting shape, and looked to be solid wood.
Â So I bought it and hoped for the best. Â I took off all the faux leather and clock insert, then gave it a quick sanding. Â Now this is where luck kicked in…I had bought a mirror at IKEA a few weeks, hoping it would fit. Â I had no idea what the size of the clock face was, so it was a complete “Hail Mary.”Â (I guess I still have football on the brain!)
Â Would you believe it was the exact size!?! Â I love it when a plan comes together so effortlessly!Â Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket or something?
Â I really thought I would love the stained wood, but I think I might need to add some paint. Â A white-wash maybe?
This was originally going into our half bathroom downstairs, but I sort of like it right where it is.Â I will probably move it eventually, who knows.
I just love mirrors!Â I have a small collection of them I’ve been saving for a project upstairs. Â We are going to be starting on our bedroom soon, and I’m hoping to have a wall of different types mirrors…more on that later.
Question of the day:Â Can you have too many mirrors?
I use them to add light, interest, and make a space look bigger.Â What about you?
I’d love to know your thoughts!
