French Blue Mirror

I’d gotten into a routine of posting once a week here on the blog and then we all fell over. We started the weekend before last with Harry getting croup, then I had some kind of flu / cold thing and then Emma finished the week with it too. Thank goodness we seemed to all recover over the weekend ready to start this week!

Remember how I said I was on a roll with mirrors? I’ve recently shared this one, AND this one, and well, today, this one!

Aubusson Blue Mirror 3

I wanted something different with this mirror, and so decided to try Annie Sloan Aubusson Blue. I’ve used this colour a couple of times before but forgotten I had some left in the garage… that tends to happen when you have an out of control work space! But as soon as I saw the can I had a picture in mind of something bold and classic, and I’m loving how it turned out.

I’d originally planned for just the blue and white, but a Facebook follower suggested the gold highlights and I love the look. I imagine it in a bedroom, its a little shorter that a full length but still a nice size. But it could also sit over a hall table or sideboard and look gorgeous…

I had a great day yesterday with a few roadside treasures that I’m hoping to get started on this weekend… one is a perfect coffee table that I’m hoping to turn into an ottoman. It has the perfect legs!

Hope you’re having a great week
