Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Without a shadow of a doubt - I am coveting & obsessing over antique mirrors.  Not the mirrors whose frames are tarnished brass showing years of wear & tear, but the mirrors themselves.  A few months ago  while dining with girlfriends at Sugar Factory in Las Vegas, I could barely pay attention to my meal as I was so transfixed on the oversized antiqued mirrors that adorned the walls.  I currently have a large (4 ft x 3ft) regular plain old boring (as any mirror that isn't antiqued is now boring) mirror hanging over my bed that I am thinking of DIY antiquing.  Any readers have any tips for doing this? I found this DIY how-to to be the most detailed - however I am not sold on spraypainting the back of the mirror gold...

Here are my photos from my inspiration folder - I am praying my mirror will look half as good as these do!

Spinnin' round

I am so sorry for neglecting this blog.  I have traveled (no exaggeration) every single weekend - & have worked my butt off during the week. I am not complaining, my life is awesome.  For those of you who follow me on twitter - you know what parts of the continental US I have been gallivanting to & from on Friday afternoons & Sunday evenings.  I promise I'll be back my darlings. In the meantime please check out my new hairdresser's blog Regan is genius, witty, & great at what she does.  She even posted a mean sidebun (updo) tutorial that I recreated for a wedding in New Hampshire this past weekend. Her product reviews are spot on, blow out how-to's have found their way into the inboxes of my girlfriends, & posts are pretty hysterical. 

If you live in NYC (like meeeeee!) visit her (I promise you will not regret it) at:
