I recently found a beautiful, gold mirrored tray at an estate sale. Swoon!
I immediately started imagining it on my bedroom dresser … I would set my very favorite candle on it. Perfect! I was imagining the dreamy way the light from the flame would bounce off the mirror below. And then, there was a tug on my sweater and a pretty little voice saying: “Mom! That would be so cute in my room with my new perfume bottle on it!” Just like that, my vision was shattered.
“Yes, Stella” I replied. this would look so cute with your new perfume bottle on it. *sigh*
“Can we paint it blue? But a girl blue … not a boy blue.”
“Of course we will paint it a girly blue!”
I removed the mirror, took it in the backyard, grabbed the girly blue spray paint (the color I used is Odyssey Blue) and the tray went from gold to girly.
