With our tax return, Mike and I bought two dressers to replace the one small one we shared (which is now becoming awesome). However, the dressers we bought didn't come with a mirror, so I decided to paint the one that had been connected to our old dresser. The dresser is black, obviously, but if you see it real life, you can actually tell it's a black stain and not actually painted. Because it's a stain, the grain is visible and there are lighter bits. So to match, instead of just painting the mirror frame (it was a orange-y stain), I watered down the paint so it go on a lot thinner and leave streaks of the old color. I'm not explaining this well. Whatever. I'm really happy with how it turned out. See?
So, it's awesome to not have to cram our stuff into one dresser anymore. I like putting away laundry now.
