Dresser Mirror Makeover

My husband brought me home some treasures!  
At first I was a little leary...see my hubs went to do a job at a sweet couples house...  They were elderly and the man really likes my hubs; wants to go fishing with him etc.  So since the first job he will call my hubs and see if he will come over for random help, or to chit chat.  Somehow it came up that I have a obsession love of painting furniture.  So what does the couple say?  "Hey we have a dresser in the garage that we would love to get rid of...FOR FREE!  For sure it got loaded in the truck!

The dresser turned out to be in great shape!  You know the type that are old but smell perfect and are totally clean YIPPEE for that!  Here is what it looks like:
Not the best picture; see when the hubs got home he went to lay the little munchkin down for a nap.  I went out to look at the treasures!  I couldn't wait and had to put it on the lift gate (see it is really heavy, still on the lift gate, but that is as far as I could move it, lol)  I have since finished this dresser; I will show you all the final shortly!

What also came with the pretty dresser was this set of mirrors:
This attaches to the back of the dresser.  I detached the side wings off and painted the mirror all up!  Wanna see??
Yet another bad picture in my messy garage!  Geesh, you would think I would learn!  Don't you love this green?  Fun for a pop of color on a wall!  I used a black glaze to bring out all the little details.
Aren't these little ends so cute?  Thankfully this little treasure has found a home, I would love to see what it looks like all hung up.  Do you sell your projects?  Don't you ever wonder how they look in peoples homes?

Now I need to think of a project to complete with those side wings...hmmm!  Could be a challenge!

Have a great day!
