Makeover Mirror and Table

I have got one more thing marked off of my to-do list. Sometimes I think it multiplies over night.
Back in the fall I found this really neat mirror and small shelf ? table? at a consignment shop. I loved the style
but the bright gold finish and the legs not so much. $50 dollars was more than I wanted to pay but I had the perfect place for it. So I took it home and with the help of Mr. Vintagesouthern hung it on the wall to see if I still loved it before starting the redo.

Skipper said he approved.
BTW, the table attaches to the wall with only two legs. The phantom hand holding the table is 
Mr. Vintage and not Thing from the Munsters Show.

I replaced the legs with more traditional legs.

I painted it black first, then Metallic Rustoleum and finally dry brushed it with
Antique Gold craft paint.
The little bust was a Hobby Lobby find. I think she was half off. I have had her for a while.
When it's cold outside it is the perfect time to paint and get things done.

Hope your having a good week. I'm glad you dropped by and y'all come back!
