Vintage Vogue Cover Art

I wanted to share a quick update on a little project I did with my Vogue vintage cover art mirror that I have featured on the wall above my marble-topped bar cabinet.  I painted the cabinet glossy black and so I wanted the mirror's frame to match. Here it is after about four coats of spray paint and one coat of acrylic polyurethane to give it the same "lacquered" finish as the cabinet




It was previously a dark-brown stained wood as seen here in the 'before' picture: 




The illustration on the mirror is by George Wolfe Plank and it was featured as the Vogue cover for the April 1918 issue.  The new black frame makes the dress of the lady riding the peacock really stand out so much more than the brown frame did.  It's amazing what a little paint can do!  





Thrifted Thursday with Love on Sunday

Happy Thursday!  Today I have the pleasure of sharing my favourite thrifted find with you over at Love on Sunday.  You've all read the transformational progress of my antique marble-topped bar cabinet, so now head on over to Amy's blog for some never-before-seen photos of it! 

I love Amy's style, and her enthusiasm for DIY and scoring a great thrifted item are right up there with my own.  Since I'm over on her blog discussing my bar cabinet, how can I not show you her amazing brass side-table-turned-bar-cart: 




And guess what?  Her bar was thrifted too.  :) 

Enjoy my post over at Love on Sunday!  If you are new to Amy's blog, I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as I do!
