Mirror Makeover Fail

This gold mirror has been in my family for a while.  I mean, it's not heirloom or anything, but it was on the wall in our home since I was about 10.  Then my parents moved to a new home about 8 years ago and didn't want it.  I have had in my apartment since.  With the move to a new apartment, I have gone with a modern, casual decor, and the gold doesn't really work with the space anymore.  So I decided to paint.  And failed.

There it is, all taped up and ready to go!  I bought a blue paint to try to match our backsplash and/or curtains...

You will see the blue color is almost gray.  So that was the look I was going for.  The paint I bought was beautiful and I really do love it, just not on the mirror.

While this pic was taken at night, I think the flash on the camera shows you  the true color

 You can see from the picture that the blue/gray color in the curtains, which is what I was going for, doesn't match the blue at all.  Now, I am not trying to be all matchy-matchy and get them perfect, but I think the hue is all wrong.  Oh well!  Live and learn.  I will have to try to find a way to fix it.  I have some leftover silver paint which I may try to lightly cover, but I think I should just resolved by repainting :(

Dolly Pearl dresses

I have been looking for a dress for an upcoming wedding and came across Dolly Pearl.  Her stuff is so adorable I could scream!  I love the neutral colors as well as the vibrant green and fuchsia. Gorgeous stuff!

GOP Debate

I could care less about the GOP debate tonight, but I just wanted a reason to wear my red jeans and navy blazer today :)
Debate Night

Also, I found these adorable letterpress coasters on Etsy by RuffHouseArt.

The Big 3-0

As I rapidly approach the big 3-0 (ah!!), I am staring to think about what kind of party I'd like to have.  Well, not really a party necessarily, but a celebration of sorts.  I am thinking Napa with my friends and family.  We shall see if the Money Gods will allow it ;)

In the meantime, I came across a birthday invitation kit, aka "Party in a Box" and had to share.  It's by a designer named Amanda Jane Jones, and her work is so unique and adorable.  Enjoy!
