Yesterday I went to a thrift store and an antique mall looking for some ornate frames that I could paint and hang in a grouping. I saw a lot of frames I liked, but didn't find any prices I liked. The search is still on.
I did, however come across a mirror that I really liked. I liked the price, too, so it came home with me. My original intention was to paint the frame of the mirror white and to hang it either in my hallway or family room. But, as I was unwrapping it in the foyer, I thought I might like it there.
Now I'm thinking that, other than cleaning it up a bit, I will leave the finish on it as is.
I'm still trying to decide if this is where I want to leave it. I had another mirror hanging in this spot previously that was a gift from my mom. I would like to move that one to the office, but that would mean moving Mark's Beatles picture.
Right now it's the only room in the house where he's hung a picture that he likes on the wall, so I don't want to take it down.
Mark and N. are at the beach, so this would be a good time to look around the house with an eye for rearranging.
