I'm telling you, my husband knows me well. For my birthday he bought me, along with a few other things, this large mirror from TJMaxx... oh my, is it cheap! It's plastic, and although it's only 3 1/2 months old, the plastic coating was already beginning to peel off in places. I knew it was cheap, but to really honest, I didn't care! If fact, as soon as he gave it to me I said, "would you care if I paint it?" Ha!
Though I do like how the original plastic color kind of blends in with the fireplace, I just couldn't take the chinsiness of it's look anymore, and there's a lot of white furniture in my living room too, so it matches that beautifully. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, here we go...
If I would have built this house, the fireplace would have been painted white and not oak-stained-a-honey-color, but Adam won't let me paint it, and even if he would let me, I'm not sure I would dare since our house will be up for sale in 3 years!
I love the mirror now, and I don't think that it looks like a cheap-o mirror anymore!Pin It
