Mini Project #2

This little cast iron mirror/jewelry box sat on my bedroom dresser for a year or two now. When I saw this on sale at a thrift store, I knew it was coming home with me. I never really did like the color until today. All it needed was a little paint and jewelry. And now, it looks like this.

Isn't he such a cutie?

I painted it ivory and did a dry brush antiquing method. It turned out nicely. I then decided to give it a bit of glamour by adding the pearl brooch to the top of the mirror. Now this little mirror sits in my guest bathroom.

Well, another mini project completed and posted on Cindy's Show and Tell Friday.

What a cute little project and you are right, it looks much better white and a bit shabby.
