Mirror Debacle Solved

After closer inspection yesterday, I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to salvage the broken pediment mirror frame (now a broken, broken pediment mirror frame…)  I called some places, and it was only going to be about $10 to have a mirror that I already had cut to fit the frame, but when I went to try and get it back together, I saw that the wood was too splintered on the back of the frame to have anything to attach back together.  :(  I’m going to save the cool pediment for a future project, so be sure that you’ll see the likes of her again!

Lucky for me, my mommy dearest said that I could have this mirror from my old room at their house (read FREE, and free is good.)  It’s actually a way better quality mirror than the other, and the lovely little corners work wonderfully with the damask motif the set has going for it.  I didn’t dare try to prop the one up and stage it for the picture, so you’ll have to use your “imagination.” (If you watch Spongebob as much as I do, you’re probably making a little rainbow with your hands while reading that…)
