I bought a cheap Ikea mirror at the thrift store.  I thought that it would be fun to alter.  However, after I applied the paint, I liked the color so much I didn't want to hide it.  I just stamped it a couple of times with a damask stamp, and it is now hanging in my foyer.
Yes, that is my hand holding my cell phone.  I like my phone, but it has a lousy camera.

your mirror re-do looks great Juliet! and the photo is not bad for a phone photo. i saw somewhere on the web someone did a tutorial on how to take good phone photos... don't know where (you'd have to google it. sorry, not very helpful), but it caught my eye because so many people take photos with their phones now.
