Let's Talk Mirrors

I found these two mirrors on Craigs List earlier this week.
Paid $50 for both. 
He said, "That's expensive firewood."
She said, "They have potential."

The mirrors came home.
He said, "Garbage Day is tomorrow."
She said, "They have potential.
Sort of a shabby chic look."
He said, "Well, you've got the shabby part right."

A few hours later, after some Windex and fresh paint,
the mirror went into the guest bedroom.

She'd painted the table months ago with the idea
that someday, with a mirror added,
it could become a vanity.
Who knew that this mirror would be the exact size!

These these two mis-matched pieces of furniture,
look like they were made for each other.
Ah, the beauty of paint!

He said, "That really looks nice."
She smiled.
Wait until you see what I have in mind for the other one."

Why is it often easier to see potential
in an old piece of furniture than in people?



  1. PERFECT! what a cool shape that mirror has. Can't wait to see the other one.

  2. wow that is spectacular
