Cool mirror.... B&A....

Today I am joining Kim for her Best of 2010 Boring to Better projects.  Although, I have had many this year, this personally was one of my favorites.  Thanks Kim for hosting.

BEFORE
Took a little trip to GW yesterday and I found a very cool old mirror. I did a little research on the company and it turns out it was pretty popular in the day...and what I am gathering the mirror is from the 50's. For 4.99 I thought I will come up with something cool and fun to do with it.
 If you know anything more about this company let me know:)
Got out a new fun color by Krylon. Glazed and sanded, found a cute little initial decal, and BAM! Now where to put it is another story, I do however have two places in mind another post to follow on that.
So cute, oh where or where to put it??
This is something my Mom recently made for me...how cute is this? I do get a lot of company and it is a nice thing to have.
And here is where the mirror wound up after all

The aqua looks great on the mirror!! I've always thought that having a guest book is a great idea.

Cute mirror and love the color change! A guest book is an awesome idea. We have one at the family home up state and it is so much fun to look back over the years and see who has visited and what exciting happened during their stay! Take care :)

Hi there Debbie,
I LOVE your mirror makeover! The color is fabulous! Do you mind sharing the name of it? I went to the G.W. today too in hopes of finding some treasures to revamp and had no luck! I guess that I should be happy with all the loot I found at last weekends garage sales! The guest book your mom made is so pretty! What a thoughtful gift!

Awesome job on the mirror, seriously! I love the coloring you did on that. You are growing in fame. You were on again at 10:15pm last night, HGTV and then hold on to your seat now, again today at 6:30pm, HGTV. Primetime baby! That's right!

Love the mirror,especially the color. I am sure you will find the perfect place for it. Aqua or teal seems to be the "in" color this year from clothes to home accessories. It really goes with so many other colors.

I love the makeover you gave the mirror! Love the color! Would you share the color and maybe a short tutorial? Love the guest book. We keep a guest book/journal at our condo on Anna Maria Island. It is so much fun to read and see what other family members and friends had to say about their visit and what they did while they were there.

I love that mirror. The sad thing is, I would have passed that up at the GW. You made it beautiful.
I have been back to your blog several times, I decided I better just become a follower. Yea!
I want to link up to your B&A party. How do I get your button if it doesn't have a code to copy underneath it? I'm not very computor savvy.
