I'm back from my holiday all refreshed and raring to go (she says through gritted teeth and piles of laundry).
This morning's find for your viewing pleasure is this art deco beveled over mantle mirror.
Apologies for the photo, but it is languishing, unhung waiting for it's playmates.
There was a small chip to the corner so I was able to grab it for less than a tenner. Luckily the people in the charity shop had saved the chip and sellotaped it on, so I was able to glue it back in place and it's barely noticeable.
I is a proper hanging mirror unlike lots I seem to see which are converted dressing table mirrors - not that that bothers me.
I have a beveled circular one and a rectangular one already, so this angular shaped on will make a lovely addition to my collection.
This has been a long-term plan. To collect up old mirrors and display them grouped together on a wall.
The trouble is, where to hang them? I'm not one for excessive housework and polishing, so they need to be away from grubby hands. My wide shouldered clumsy man has pretty much ruled out hanging them up the staircase and I suspect in the bathroom they'd get constantly splashed from the shower.
At the moment the favourite location seems to be at the top of the stairs, opposite the stair banister so they can be seen from the landing, but am I asking for 35 years bad luck if they all come tumbling down?
I need a few more before my plan is complete, I fear I shall be heading to Baycrazy sometime soon...
What glorious second-hand finds have you rescued lately?
