A new reflection!

As I have stated in previous posts, we live in a small tract house in So Cal.  So my entry is therefore 'small', if you can call it an entry at all!  Back in January I repainted a garage sale find mirror to add to my wall of mirrors, as I say 'tongue in cheek'.  Nothing like the cool wall of mirrors Mandi has at Vintage Revivals.  Too cool!

Anyway back in March I went garage saling with the girls and found a few more mirrors for the wall.  Here are a few pics of the before, I had already taken out the mirrors to get them ready for paint.

The square one has some acorn details and we have acorn details on the stairs and our buffet.  Pics to follow.  The scrolly mirror says it was made in Italy!  Got it for $5 and the other two were $5 together.
Here is a before pic of the wall.
See the front door is on the left and the stairs are on the right, small entry.  Well after painting and rearranging, here is my new 'wall of mirrors'.

I repainted the 'N' and turned it the other way.  This is where the hooks are.  I think it goes the other way, but DH disagrees!  I love how they turned out, now I just need to find 2 small ones for over the switchplate and at the bottom of the N row.  Then maybe I will go up!

Here a pics of our acorns.  When we redid the stairs in 2008 we added newel posts with acorn details.  A year later when my contractor was building my buffet, we used the acorns for the feet!  So now I am always looking for acorns!
Have a great week,

Hi, I'm visiting from Under the Table and Dreaming. I like your mirrors, but agree with you (I think!) that the "N" as you have it now is backwards. Love those acorns!
