Kirkland’s was having a summer clearance sale on mirrors. We found an oversized one that would work and took it home. Less than $40 for a giant mirror! The color was off…more bronze than the copper theme we are trying to weave throughout the house.
“Someone” (i.e. Chris) thought it would be fine but I couldn’t settle. We went out to Hobby Lobby and bought a can of Krylon for about $4. After a quick taping/spray job we waited until it was dry. After a few touch ups, it was ready to go! We really liked how it turned out. On to the next project…

We have been focusing on storage solutions lately- a tufted ottoman from Wayfair, a wardrobe from Hay Needle, and cubes for my small walk in closet from Home Depot.
I painted two of the closets. Good thing we saved the paint sample quarts from our first failed attempt at picking the right color! A quart took care of the hall closet and the guest room closet. The colors are in the same family as the colors we picked-SW Tradewind and Silver Strand-which worked out well and didn’t clash.
