 There's a fuuny story about this, I lived in an apt. complex on the beach and someone died and their apt was cleaned out, well the mirror and it's frame were throw out in the dumpster and I couldn't salvage the frame but knew instantly that the mirror was very old. I took a framing class and reframed it!

 This is another throw out-a very heavy detailed chinese chest that I painted black and then had red stain created and hand rubbed the stain in and then a clear coat of lacquer-new home for shoes..lots of shoes!
I specifically bought this armoire many years ago for it being all white!! well years later of course-it had to go red! Unlike the chest this armoire is painted a matt red with a black matt stain wiped on it, sort of the opposite of the chest!
 This is my Dining Room Chandlier ( 30$ from Home Depot) added blue glass ball christmas ornaments, added glass beads, spanish glass grapes.
 The wall has a hand made ceramic light switch (not me), a real swiss Co-Co clock, and is decorated with ivy and leaves hand stamped with a gold, bronze, copper glazes.

 This is the living room. Thomasville sofa with various pillows. African mirror, photos of my Italian photos, lamps made from antique wall paper rollers. Corner cabinet is an antique. Ceramic vase in corner on stand-I made and glass vases are Italian. Wall I faux finished to look sort of like an antique rock wall with stucco , copper, gold, bronze glazes.

 This is my dining room wall that I hand lettered a saying from Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and leaf stamps with gold, bronze and ivy stamps.

 This is the closet in my entry I transformed into a little temple area. Not a Buddhist, but love the serenity that it creates. The fan is from the near by Buddhist temple in Kaneohe Hawaii. Wall is sponged with a bronze over gold. Molding is a bragged stain.
 This is the Entry with a three legged Deco table, with a Spanish mirror and Red velvet drapes into the Family room.
This is my Antique Mirror in the Entry. Found it in a Garage Sale. It is hand painted on the front. Very heavy.

This is a corner of by Red Bedroom. Sunburst mirror, Birdcage lamp I created covered in black lace (saw this is a shop in GA) love it,, silver cross , glass from Italy, and mirror glass vases.
This is a photo of the antique mirror, I found garage sailing! It is hand painted very old sliver leafed and very heavy. I painted the wall it is on to mimic the hand painted flowers/vines on it.
This is one of the posters from my Great Grandparents restaurant in Parma Italy 1890s. Isn't it awesome, in my favorite color!
