My lucky find: A lovely antique mirror...

Good morning friends! I hope that you're having a great week!

Just a quick post, but I had to share with you a glimpse of the antique mirror that I bought earlier this month at one of favorite haunts, Sweet Peas. It will be used in the "new" old bathroom that we are working on. I couldn't believe that I found an antique in the exact measurement that we needed to center over the sinks, and in the first store that I looked at, no less! The frame is solid wood and very heavy, and per the label on the back, in 1948 the mirror portion was replaced in Hickory, NC. We pass right through Hickory on the way to the mountains, so I guess this baby was meant to be ours!

 Below you see the mirror sitting in the back of my car.
This is a photo of the detail on the top of the frame...

...and the detail on one of the sides...

The picture below was taken in the bathroom, 
when I started to paint it.
Because we want a clean and uncluttered  farmhouse
look in this bathroom,
I did not want to leave it in its shabby 
and grimy looking state. 
It will actually match the moldings and bead board
that will sit against it... 

Have you lucked out with any special finds lately? I hope that you have a great day!
