Headboard Mirror Makeover

I so wish I had of taken a picture of this mirror before I dolled it up! I bought this from the Goodwill store probably 2 years ago or better. When I saw it laying there I knew I had to have it. This was actually part of a headboard for a bed. Still had the screws, nuts and bolts and a bracket on the back of it when I spotted it. It was filty and well, I loved it! Had no clue what I wanted to do with it and for over 2 years now I have tried to talk hubby into taking it to the hunting camp in case they needed it! I am so glad he didn't! In the midst of remodeling my bedroom that old ugly mirror-part of a headboard came to mind! I got my trusty tool box out and went to work on the back of it removing all the unwanted and unknown pieces. I clean it up and decided against repainting it or staining it. I loved the detail in the wood as it was. Took some Old English and shined it up. Then I knew where I wanted it. Looks perfect sitting on top of my 3-drawer chest and matched! And for the mere price of $8 and a little cleaning I had me something new!
