Sneak Peek: The Giant Gold Mirror

Carved, gold, and 48 inches wide, this mirror came into my life via Peter and Joy this last weekend, for free.
These legs came into my life via 44 hour labor 17 years ago. Get out of the shot, Thom!
As I was saying, this vintage masterpiece is getting a serious beachy makeover, which I ran past Carolyn Reilly last night.
Do you love it? I do! Sam has a different opinion, but that may be the swell gilt finish coloring his vote. I think I can make it fabulous. So stay tuned!

Of course you'll make it fabulous! It already is but I know you've got plans for it!

I do! I love it! I can't even say exactly why, because I'm not usually a gold mirror fan. But I really, really love this one -- just the way it is. I think I'd almost be sad to see it made over (although the curves are so fantastic, I think it would be lovely in just about any color).

So what are we thinking? White? Black? Turquoise?

I was thinking turquoise with a wash of white over it. The only problem with leaving it gold is that all the metallic accents here are silver. But I'm glad you guys like it!

I think it would be fab in turquoise. A touch of glam for whatever space you use it in. I have a hideous huge gold mirror that was my grandma's, and for that reason alone I will not part with it. I plan to paint mine, because I feel like some things that are over-the-top scrolly and ugly in gold can be just terrific in a bright, fun color.

What an awesome piece! Can't wait to see where your creativity takes it. Found your blog from a repost of your cinder block wall - lucky me!
