Paneling Done + Birthday Purchases

Penelope and I went shopping for my birthday, and we picked up a few things for the house. I was the most excited for this mirror I got for $10 at the thrift store:

large antique scrolly mirrorI've been looking for a mirror with scrolly edges for that wall just behind it for awhile. I plan on painting it, maybe next week.

Now before you get your panties in a bunch about me painting that nice wooden frame, let me let you in on a little secret: It's not wood. It's painted plastic.

I also picked up some more pillows for the window seat in the dining room. I'm not totally sold on what's going on there ... and one of those pillows is on loan from the living room, so we'll see.

  1. Great curvy mirror find! I can see your vision... all that paneling painted white... & a door with a window will make such a difference!!! There is nothing like natural light, plus your site line will increase! Can't wait to see the progression.
