A Marriage of Sorts....

I've had this mirror hanging in my kitchen area for quite some time

and I've never been all that crazy with the finish (gold with a white wash)

and then... while out shopping at Jo-Ann Fabrics I came across this French flower basket

so naturally I bought it.... along with some pretty faux flowers to fill it

Loved how it turned out and knew it would look great hanging on that mirror... once I painted it white of course!


So I promptly gave it my Chantilly Lace paint job

And they're living happily ever after....








I'm happy too!

Tres jolie!

Alaina said...

It looks beautiful. I have a picture frame almost exactly like it but gold, so that's what it will look like white. I have painting to do.

I wish we had a JoAnn's up here in Canada...your mirror and basket turned out absolutely gorgeous. You are so talented. Would you be willing to share your Chantilly lace painting effect?

Thanks so much,

I LOVE that basket! I haven't seen that at my JoAnn's, apparently I need to look closer. Hope you have a great weekend :)

Passionate for White said...

Because a few have asked.... My "Chantilly Lace paint job" was nothing more than painting the mirror with Benjamin Moore's Chantilly Lace #OC-65 flat white paint and then sanding it over in spots for a shabby effect.

Can't go wrong with the Chantilly Lace treatment!" I use this color on everything and I'm glad that you are trying it out too.

I love your mirror and that basket is the cutest ever. It looks like a small version of the vintage ammo basket that I found bought from a dealer.

Very pretty.

hugs

Oh, I missed this post. I found the same basket at Tuesday Morning. I posted on it, recently. That's too funny. Great minds think alike. You have great taste :) Heeee Michelle xo

We have the same basket! Yours looks beautiful the way you've done it up. I love the idea of hanging it on the mirror. It just couldn't be prettier...
