I finished repainting my mirror and hung it above the piano. Here is a ‘before’ look at the mirror that I got in a thrift store (Well, almost before. I was anxious to start and then remembered I didn’t have a picture).
We have a very old, dark piano. A few years ago I turned the oval panels around to show the light wood, like the inside of my piano. Here you can see those panels.
I recently decided to turn them back to the dark wood. While I had my piano all opened up I took a few shots of the details inside the piano.
Seems a shame to have it hidden away!
Here is the finished project.
I set a few things on the piano top so you can get the idea, but I’m getting ready to get the Christmas decorations out, so I didn’t want to spend to much time on it.
It’s time for me to ‘Deck the Halls’, and don’t tell me it’s too early. Today I was at Michaels getting something for a school project of my daughter’s, and I overheard a woman saying “You know, Christmas really snuck up on me this year!” It’s November 17th! I love it.
P.S. This project also included a lot of spackling and repainting of the previous holes. Especially since the first time I hung the mirror it was about eight inches to high and the hooks showed. I needed a few days to ‘ponder’ the height, and then I took it down and rehung it (and more spackle and paint). I also learned to use the power drill. ( and fill the holes and re-drill) I know, I’m a baby. I need to get used to power tools. Jon said I did a good job though, and he thought the wall looked great. I’m pretty proud of it and can’t wait for Christmas.
