delicious yellow-orange. Home Depot makes great paint I have tried three different brands and they were all  Stellar. That’s why I drive  a mile out of my way to get my paint. A mile isn’t that far right? They also have $2 quarts and $.50 samples in the paint reject pile, the best deal in town.  I wrote a whole post about my favorite paints read it here.

I diligently sanded and primed and painted the mirror. I love the color. Now for the stenciling. I decided to just do a floral motif to go with the curving lines of the mirror. I discovered that even my thinnest stencil was too wide of the thin curved lines of the mirror. I stenciled anyway. I love the abstract nature of the partial stenciling. Almost done, just some touching up to do as usual. I think I’ll add some white to the base. I am going to use it in a photo shoot for an advertisement I have coming up. Love It! Till next time.
