Anyway, I wanted to finally reveal what I meant to buy when I purchased the blue glass lamp for the master bedroom way back in April. You may recall I had come across an item of interest on Craig’s List and ended up purchasing the lamp and the item. What was the item?
It was a large Eastlake mirror.
Originally I was looking for something big to fill up the wall space at the bottom of the basement stairs (from the above pictures you can tell it did not end up there) and thought a large mirror would be just the thing. I have always loved the look of an oversized mirror leaning against the wall and this seemed like the perfect spot.
After a while, however, I realized it was just not big enough for the space. It looked good but didn’t have the impact I had wanted. I began looking for an alternative location and was so pleased to see it fit perfectly at the entrance to the basement stairwell.
No surprise in that I decided to paint it white – Annie Sloan’s old white to be exact. I still have not figured out if I should distress the edges or leave it as is. I keep waffling between the two. I would love to know what you think!
Thanks again for your patience! I am going to try to get caught up soon.
