Refinishing Dining Room Accessories

We had this mirror up in the dining room. I wasn’t sure if I was going to use it or not. I knew I didn’t want to use it the way it was.


I purchased this from Old Time Pottery thinking I would use it.

But I decided to refinish the mirror instead.

Taping it off isn’t as easy as it seems. The blue tape didn’t want to stick that great to the edge of the glass. The wind would blow and it would flip the paper up. lol


But I did get it taken care of.


I found this little lamp on my husband’s work bench. He brought it back from the farm, intending to get rid of it. I never thought I would have used it. It had a gold stem….

But after I finished with it, it looked like this.  I’m not going to show you the shade yet…. you’ll have to wait on that.

I bought a light switch cover and decided to paint it too.

I found these cute little mirrors at the Ikea store when I was there. I bought two of them that were painted black and two that were not painted.

Of course I painted the unpainted ones… my Dover white.

I had this little chest of mini drawers that my mom gave me. She loved it.. so of course I love it even more because of that. You can also see the little lamp before it was painted too.

Then I painted it.  There’s something a little special about this that I’ll share later.
