Show and Tell Friday ~ Rescued Mirror from Babushka

  ” Show and Tell Fridays “

 

My brother had odds and ends from old bedroom sets from our grandparents. When he was moving his household goods to Dallas from Los Angeles several items were destined for Salvation Army. I grabbed this dresser mirror before it was donated. After bringing it to our new little condo we contemplated what we’d do with it. I found the shelf that the candles and sign are on at HomeGoods one day. I hoped it was the right size for the bottom of the mirror. Whoopee, it fit well. Dear fastened it to the bottom of the mirror and we hung it on the wall in the dining room. It gives our room more depth and the shelf is nice for candles to add a nice glow during entertaining. Heritage rescued and now enjoyed.

Go on over to There’s No Place Like Home to see more “show and tell”
