Mirror Re-Do & Spring Happenings

In my last post, I painted my entry table and mentioned that I was working on something to hang over it.  Well people.... here she is.  Well at least this is what it used to look like.

My dad found this gigundo mirror for me last year at a yard sale.  The tag said $1.00, but Dad got them down to $0.50!  Can you believe that!  

I'm telling you, this thing is HUGE!  The picture really doesn't do it justice.  

I knew I loved the mirror, but for a long time I couldn't decide what I wanted to do with it, so it sat in my storage room for a year.  Once I finished my entry table re-do, I knew I wanted it there.  And since the entry table is white, I went with ORB (oil rubbed bronze) spray paint for the mirror.

First thing I had to do was clean it up.  After that, I taped craft paper over the mirror part just leaving the frame exposed.

Done!  Now just to let it dry.... I'm extremely impatient.... luckily I had a little girl to distract me for a couple hours.

Not only is this thing huge, it's HEAVY!  I struggled carrying it up the stairs, but I got it.  I'm super woman.

I was going to hang it above the table, but once I got it upstairs and realized how big it was compared to the table, I decided to just prop it up on the table and lean it against the wall .

Ahhhh.... I love it.

While I was at it, I decided to go ahead and infuse a little bit of Springtime into the table decorations.  It's colder than an Eskimo's booty outside... I'm tired of this.... I just want Spring.  Well, at least my entry table can feel sunny and warm.

First off, a vase full of tall flowers.  I really needed these because they are so big.  I needed them to balance out the mirror a bit.  The little glass jar with yellow flowers was just a little extra sunshine.

Next I added the change jar.  This isn't for Spring (obviously).  It'll stay here throughout the seasons.  My dad actually found this jar for me in an old building.

A little digging on Pinterest and I found this free printable from The 36th Avenue here.

And last but not least, I added this shovel (that my Dad got for me at a yard sale for $0.25- go figure) as a nod to my garden I plan to plant soon.

So if anyone was keeping track, my Dad got me the mirror, the coin jar and the shovel.  Oh, and he also got me the chest under the table.  Thanks for my entry table Daddy :)

Here is the progression of my entry table in the last couple week.  I think I can finally stick a fork in her and call her done.
