$7 Rummage Sale Mirror ~

I recently picked up this mirror at a local rummage sale. 

Yep, that little tag says $7 big ones. I knew right away that with a little paint, he would look great in our Master Bedroom.

So I painted him black - of course.

After it was dry, I lightly sanded the edges. 


And here he sits...

You gotta love - rummage sales!
