What I found delightful today was in this photo ..
Years ... many years ago, my husband and I , were browsing through antique shops in NYC , not in any posh area ... and we found this mirror.
It was propped against a pile of rugs, dirty and dull wood .. the glass was in bad shape, black showing through in streaks where age and not being cared for, had done their job in the mirror ..
We bought it immediately. I have a "Thing" for mirrors ..
We brought it home and cleaned it up and kept it for about a week .. seeing it in our home every day .. My husband said one day, we have to paint that thing.
So his idea ( not mine at all!) was to paint it Chinese Red.
He painted it. I disapproved.
It stayed red for about a year .. then we moved house and when we were all settled in to that house, the mirror was painted white. By yours truly. He saw what good ideas I had and that mirror hangs at the top of the stairs, here in my home .. about 20 years older than it was when it came to be with us.
