Mirror Redo: Before & After!

I am so excited to share my latest redecorating project! I had this great mirror in my guest room that was nice, but not GREAT. It had a bit of a gold tint in it, and well, I'm just not a huge gold fan, so I decided I would repaint it! I went back and forth on colors (even called my mom who was not very much help at all with the decision making- and I know she'll read this, so I'll add that I love her anyway;)) I didn't want to do black, because I wanted something brighter, but with our white walls, I didn't think the white would stick out like I wanted. So I kept going back to this green and just couldn't decide if it would be too out there. In the end, I decided to go for it, figuring I could always repaint if I didn't like it, and I'm so glad I took the chance because I LOVE it! It's amazing how much a couple coats of paint can change the look of something.

I've said this once, and I'll say it again, I'm really not a very crafty person, but I've been trying to force it out of me! Ha! This was my first time spray painting anything so I was a bit uncertain how it would go, but it was really easy! I have several other projects I would like to try now too!

I will be linking this post to Saturday Swagger, hosted by one of my very favorite blogs, It's A Crafty Life! For more decorating, craft, recipes, etc head on over there!
