Simple Mirror Makeover

I've been trying to brighten up my dining room a bit. Things seemed a little dark, so I decided to add some blue and white accents. I picked up some new lamps at Winners.. which I love:) and decided to give my mirror a little update.
Here it is before:

a spray painted coat of primer

2 coats of white paint and voila!

Quick and easy and now it suits the room so much more!

In other news... You've heard me lament before about my favorite stores that won't ship to Canada. Well one of those stores is West Elm. It's one of my favorites and luckily there is a store in Toronto. I figured it wouldn't hurt to give them a call and see if they would ship to me. To my surprise they said YES! I was so excited that I impulsively bought 3 light fixtures. Four days later they were sitting on my doorstep. I can't wait to see them all installed. I'll post pictures soon.

For those who are interested in ordering from West Elm. The shipping was 10% of the purchase.


  1. Oooh, love the white mirror between the lamps. It tied everything together!!

  2. Those lamps are gorgeous, I love the color! And nice how you changed the mirror to white. Did you scrape the mirror with a razor after painting? Is that wallpaper on your walls- it's such a fun print.

  3. Thanks Megan.. I did scrape the mirror. It is so much easier than taping and looks more finished! The wallpaper is a damask print. One of the first thing that I did when I moved in.. actually I have to give credit to my aunt Marilyn.. she is the wallpaper master!

  4. Very excited about your lights. Can't wait to see them up!

  5. Great job on the mirror...I'll paint anything but mirrors(they scare me!) But you've made me think I could maybe do it! Yah for new lights!

  6. it turned out fabulous!! Can't wait to see your new lights. Gotta love West Elm!
