While most bloggers are gearing up for fall new looks and colors… I’m still holding on to summer like a kid kicking and screaming “Don’t go” – grabbing on his mommy’s leg when she’s leaving…lol..
I can’t help it.. I love summer.. So I’m sharing, I guess, my final makeover for the garden. I found these mirrors at a yard sale for $5.00ea. I had no idea what I was going to use them for when I bought them, but I figure, at $10.00 bucks – I’ll find something. They were sturdy mirrors made of some type of hard plastic and quite heavy. I left them outside for a few days (not intentionally – during heavy rainstorms and saw they withheld it) so that’s when it hit me… They could be my outdoor mirrors. I’ve been wanting a mirror in the garden, but outdoor mirrors are so expensive (WHY?????) Here are the pair of mirrors – I really liked the scrolling on top but the color…YIKES!! talk about ugly… blah….
So with my trusty paint can in hand.. I gave them a new look…
I know it’s not a fall color – but I don’t care.. I love the summer look.. and besides.. it’s still 90’s here and I’m loving it.. even though the leaves are beginning to fall.. (I’m dreading it..)… but anyway, I’m just going to enjoy my mirrors in the garden for the next few weeks..
For a whimsical touch, I used Martha Stewart’s gold paint to outline the scroll detail.
I may not keep it here, but I do like how it goes with the bistro set (and it blocks the view of the dead tree). I’ll worry more about that next summer, but at least I have my outdoor mirrors. ☺️
