Paint Emilee’s new mirror. Number 3 on my 10 Tasks in 10 Days Challenge. I bought the mirror at Tai Pan’s 75% off sale last week and knew it was going in Emilee’s room.  

But the color had to be changed to fit in, so I papered and taped off the mirror area.

Then primed it.

Next I painted it a yellow I’m still not sure about. Umm, would you say that was bright? Emilee wasn’t sure about it either, until Amanda said she loved it. Apparently all it takes is a big sister saying she loves it.

It looked pretty good once it was in her room. It’s not going to stay on the dresser though. Her room is a work in progress.

Here’s the details on the mirror. Time will tell if it stays this yellow. I think it’s already starting to grow on me.

One down, nine to go.

I kind of like the yellow! Doesn’t it feel good to cross things OFF the list?? ;)

We did all of the furniture in Savannah’s room in Key Lime, Grape, Lavender, and Spa Blue, and she still loves all the bright fun colors. I think the yellow was a great funky touch.

I had to check this out for nothing else than you have an Emilee spelled the way my niece spells hers! I love your idea – I get so timid when it comes to bold colors. This works and as you reminded me – it is subject to change – just pick another color, right? Thanks for being courageous – nice job! Elaine

Be glad Brooklyn is not there, that is her favorite color she might try to snag it lol! I think it looks great.
