Shabby Happy

I've been getting carried away lately, with
the 'shabby' look.

I had this oak stained mirror for a long time and
one day last week thought I'd give it
'the treatment'

Started with a coat of light bluish green paint,

then a coat of white paint,

then some sanding of edges to rough it up and
 allow the green to show through,
and also to make it look like 
something I found discarded along the edge of the road.

You know: The Treatment. 

And there ya go...
another shabby chic mirror.

One thing about the shabby chic look you can't mess it up!!!


  1. It's OK to get a little shabby. Cute redo.

  2. Hi There~

    Lovely mirror makeover & I love shabby chic too. I invite you to link to my K.I.S.S. Blog Bash. Trying to becoming a new follower but seems like blogger is acting up again. :( Will try again shortly.
