trips and surprises

my husband was in vegas this weekend and came home to a new huge triple mirror hung in our dining room...

our family room fireplace brick primed...

and the mirror above our fireplace painted blue!

at least, after 10 years of marriage, it is no longer a surprise that surprises will be waiting for him when he gets home :)

the mirror is from an estate sale i went to on friday. i am going to paint it white to freshen it up since it currently looks a bit 80s gaudy and blends in too much with the antiqued brass chandelier. hopefully today, the fireplace brick will turn a mid range taupe color and i will clean up the mirror. i can't believe i am already making progress on my make-over to do list.
