    Very pretty. I agree – one of the great things behind vintage pieces is imagining all the stories behind them.

    Ha! The fumes were getting to you ~ love it! : ) What a great mirror. I love that it is round and it looks great white. Interesting story somewhere in there, I'm sure, but you're right that it will have a new story now.

    Everything does have a story and it would be nice to know them. Very interesting to find that newspaper in there. Makes you wonder for sure. I love how it turned out. The round shape in really unique and it does look great in that room. Thanks for sharing.

    Great job on the mirror! The fumes tend to get to me too!! 🙂 1963 is the year my parents were married…maybe you should put a newspaper article behind the mirror too! It could be the time capsule mirror! 🙂

    I love to imagine where antique things may have come from and who owned them. How fun that you found the newspaper though. Your mirror turned out absolutely beautiful.

    I love how your mirror turned out! I have that exact mirror my great great aunt gave it to my mother and about a month ago she gave it to me. I have been debating painting it. I love the white I might just have to do the same. I'll let you know how it turns out:) Thanks for sharing.

    Or maybe…the newspaper has a secret code that is actually a treasure map! Oh boy, I've been reading way to much Dan Brown lately! LOL The mirror looks great!
