Clean Up That Copper...

with dreamy whites!


Remember this great full-length mirror that I scored at a garage sale?


I pictured it with a fresh, white-washed coat of paint...


and it turned out just like I had envisioned...stunning!


And, an inexpensive Goodwill find shapes up nicely,



and becomes a versatile little architectural element, revived.


I love white because it's so flexible--I can move accessories from room to room when I get "that urge" to make another change. Here's to economical re-decorating!

I love a good yard sale find- I had better luck when I lived in Mesa- a few decades ago- but it's still fun!
