It certainly has been a different vacation for her. Our usual shopping trips were crossed by Sandy and some of our favorite stores like HomeGoods are still closed and without power. Oh well, I guess this saves us money, right? The kids were off from school all week and the hubby had picked the worst week for vacation. It's almost funny if you think about it.
I wanted to wait with a post about my two mirrors and their final destination but then I started with the project and just couldn't wait to share what I discovered.
Here are the two mirrors that I bought two weeks ago and what they looked like before.
So I decided to clean and prime them and when I opened the back to take the mirrors out, I had a horrible surprise waiting for me. I screamed soooo loud. Gag!
There were maggots feeding on dead stink bugs.
After disposing of the disgusting mess I cleaned the frame with TSP cleaner, waited until they dried and then primed them with Kilz spray paint primer.
The mirror already looks so much better, doesn't it?
I couldn't resist spray painting the one mirror with one of my favorite spray paint colors. It's the same color that I sprayed these lamps with. The color is Hacienda Tile by Valspar but I like to call it tangerine. That's what it looks like to me. It's not red and not orange.
Besides the yucky surprise I do love these 2 mirrors. Isn't the color great?
Have a great weekend und guten Tag!
