Mirror mirror on the wall

Who has the ugliest mirrors of all? Eighty-year old ladies do.I was blessed with this gold "beauty" years ago (it was left in my parents' house by the previous owner, Priscilla, age 87). I had the good faith to keep it through 3 moves and now it looks like I will be hanging it on my wall. After belt sanding it and painting it a cool turqoise high-gloss. Happy Labor Day weekend!

Kid's bath

I have my next project!!! In M's bath recently, my three-year old was able to pull the soap dish off the wall! First call was to grandpa to make sure we didn't have a concussion. Second call was to my contractor to discuss a fix. Third was to my husband to explain Maggie's ( and the bath's ) condition! Here is the damage....demolition starts next week! Check back for details.
