i had an old victorian era dresser mirror - very eastlake style - simple - original wood finish - i picked it up for like 12 bucks at a sale - i liked the shape of the frame and the flaking of the mirrored finish on the mirror itself - i painted it white, distressed it and accented it with some seashells i had - i like the way it turned out - i plan on taking it to the upcoming zapp hall show in warrenton, texas ...
