Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Hubby and I walked through an antique store over the past weekend.  This place is almost like a flea market too in that everything there is sectioned into groupings by different vendors (except the vendor's aren't actually there).  I guess a lot of it is considered vintage and not an antique but either way it's interesting.

 I came across this mirror and was smitten right away. 

I asked the sale's clerks if they knew anything about it but all they could offer was that it may be from the 50's or 60's.  Some parts of it seem new and some old.  Perhaps it is a contrived piece?

 If you were to judge this piece from behind it makes me think it's even older than they thought but no matter what it's age I just liked it and for $25 I decided to go for it.

 The nail (left) that helps attaches the top piece looks very old. 

This week I was visiting several blogs and ran across two posts that had mirrors of a similar nature.

What intrigued me about this mirror is seeing it painted and chippy- it takes on a whole different personality doesn't it!

Then I came across this mirror from the Ivy and Elephants post called "Looking for Love"

I have to admit I didn't have a plan for where my mirror was going to go but at this point I'm going to try it in our bedroom.  I never show our bedroom because it's barely 12' x 12'  and with a king sized bed in there isn't much left to the room!   I have some ugly curtains to remove and it needs an updated painting.  We shall see if someday I am brave enough to show it!
