{CSN giveaway winner & thrifty find}

Craigslist has been good to me this weekend. While on the hunt for a sideboard for our games room, I stumbled across this great mirror made from solid wood {it is heavy} for only $25!  It is going to go into J's room {almost 15 year old daughter}.

She ended up in a new space after we made the great switch and I have yet to do anything with that space {much to her chagrin}.

This mirror, once painted {maybe black or Tiffany blue?}, will look fantastic, echoing the lines of her diamond tufted headboard, 
I made a second one but am waiting for a sunny day to take photos.

So now I have another painting project to add to my never-ending-list!

Now onto the $45 gift certificate for CSN winner!

Drum roll please.............

It is,

  10. Nice score. I found a similar mirror last week on my thrifting journey and I'm kicking myself for not picking it up.

  11. That mirror has great lines and I am sure you will "rock" it with paint!
