Mirror Mirror On The Wall and WINNERS

Oh how I LOVE about you? Until the last few years...I never minded looking in one...but since I started putting on so many pounds...I just try not to look in them anymore. I'm so hoping to get a lot of these extra pounds off so I can enjoy all my pretty mirrors again. Today I pulled out some of my Annie Sloan chalk paint and got to work on this one. I used some paris grey paint, then added dark wax and this plain jane mirror came to the power of paint!!! Today is a big day here at COASTAL's time to announce the WINNER of the ANNIE SLOAN CHALK PAINT GIVEAWAY from COTTAGE ATTITUDES and the WINNER of the cute apron/soapdish/ let's see who these lucky gal's are.

Linda she looks beautiful on that dresser!! Great makeover and love the pretty vignette too.

Lori said...

Ha, love the comment about your wedding dress! I haven't used the dark wax yet. Really changes the color doesn't it? I use a clear miniwax paste on my pieces. If I want them darker I rub a dark stain on them and wipe off before the wax.

Crystal @ Ordinary Days said...

Size! I thought my size 6 that needed to be altered and taken down in places was small!! lol I LOVE the mirror! Awesome!!

You did an AMAZING job on the mirror. Great post (as always)!

cathy@My1929Charmer said... Thanks for sharing this beautiful mirror at Sunday's Best. I feel the same way you do, I never look in a mirror that's long. I'm so unhappy with how I look, ashamed actually. So I wish you success on losing a few pounds, I'm trying, no I will succeed and so shall you!
