Vintage Traditional Mirror Makeover: A Chip off the Old Marblehead

I had in mind a certain sweet color scheme for the Chippendale-Style Mirror I found at a local antique mall last month.  

Looking "refinished" and in need of a little love, I asked y'all what color you thought it wanted to be.  

Jenny, Amanda and Heidi thought a deep dusty barn red with bits of black and gold would be fabulous.

Kate was thinking, "A light purple with a nice pearl gloss." 

My friend Amy, little sister of one of my East Coast college buddies said, "A faded light blue green."

Which happens to be EXACTLY what I was thinking.

When my friend Marcia, who like Amy and her big sister, Jenn…hales from a fabulous old town just north of Boston…saw the "thumbnail" of the photo below on facebook,

She said...

It looks like an artist's rendition of Massachusetts!

How sweet is that!!
