Welcome to the Blog today. I was so excited to share my new thrifted finds with you earlier this week. One of them was a great distressed mirror…pictured above. I wanted to create a farmhouse style vignette using the mirror. It had to be something simple and something I could easily change so I settled on a spray of flowers and cotton that I put together quickly from my stash of flowers. In keeping with the distressed look I let the wire show along with the rusty hinges. The flowers trail across one corner of the mirror adding to the casual feel.
A black and cream table runner anchors the vignette and adds a country feel. Then I gathered together a bowl of sage cut from the garden and placed it in the center of the sideboard.
A shabby chic, wooden, candlestick came next with a multi-colored pillar candle that picks up the black in the mirror. The rough carving goes well with that casual look.
The grouping still seemed a little bare so I added a small watercolor in a black frame to the mix. It adds a pop of color while keeping things still in the black and cream color family.
Everything came together nicely. I think it has a country feel. What do you think?
Here it is from a side view.
I moved the picture to the front in this view as I couldn’t decide which way I liked it best. I love how the mirrors reflect the sage and add the reflection to the vignette.
This was a quick, fun, project and easy to do. I know I will be using the mirror in many settings. It is a perfect size for display. You never know what you’re going to find thrifting.
