Vintage Mirrors for White Wednesday

Hello Everyone, and Happy 1st day of February!

Today I am joining Kathleen, over at FADED CHARM, for White Wednesday.

I thought I would share with you some of the mirrors that I have either been given, found at Goodwill, or at my local Antique store....and that have all been given a shabby white makeover to.

First up is this wonderful heavy metal mirror that I found at Goodwill....I actually didn't have to do a thing to this one, as it was already painted a nice cottage white, but just needed a good cleaning. I did display this on the wall in our Living room, but have just recently placed it on my fireplace overmantle.



One of my favorite style of mirrors to look for are these vintage filigree metal mirrors...they are usually found in either gold or silver, and I always paint them white....sometimes pink :) These next 2 photos show 2 that are displayed in my Vintage cabinet in our Dining room...





Another style I am always on the hunt for are Vintage Syroco mirrors...I have 2 of these, this one below is displayed in our Master Bedroom....



and the other is in our Living Room....the sweet little mirror is a Goodwill find, and the other mirror below it was found at one of the local Antique stores a few years ago....and yes, that is our Big Black Box tv you see....there's no hiding it, so one must "work around" it, lol :)



This fabulous large mirror was given to us by my father-in-law....originally brown wood, I painted it white, of course :) This mirror hung in our Dining room for a few years, but when I moved the fireplace & overmantle in there, I had to move the mirror into the living room.



And lastly, is another sweet Vintage filigree mirror...this one I've displayed on the coffee table, and have placed a couple of Goodwill candleholders on it...oh yes, gotta love Goodwill!



Thanks so much for stopping by ~ please be sure to check out all the other wonderful whites being shown today for White Wednesday.
