1ST DIBS FIND

Seeing as how I love color, pink and just about anything relating to the sea, this mirror definitely caught my eye as I perused the pages of listings on 1st Dibs from LA based "Downtown". This would look striking in a beach cottage hanging above a console in an entryway. It was created by Onik Agaronyan. Yes, it's funky, but any of you who know me by now know that I don't go for the ordinary! Pity I don't have $3,800 extra dollars lying around. LOL . I am sure I could make something like this for a mere fraction of the price - get me my glue gun and a can of Montana spray paint (world's best!)

Anna,
Love to see your creation inspired by this lovely mirror. I have files of this sort of "she sells seashells in the seashore" type of created from something found. Plug that glue gun in and rev up that can of spray paint...

Hey Trina! As always, I appreciate your comments. The Montana paint is amazing and comes in about 180 colors - and gorgeous ones - it's from Spain and I found it at my local art store. I will def.check out your door! You have the best ideas!

Patricia~ You are right! I should really make something like this. You will be the first to see it if I do! Have a great day! XO

Wow, what a gorgeous piece. Thanks for the introduction to Montana spray paint as well! I was begining to despair at only Home depot choices :P

Hi Karen! yes, you would love the Montana color selection - so much more than the generic paint colors available at Home Depot, etc. I know we both love the same colors!

Okay - I just love your blog. Everytime I stop over, I find so much fun stuff. First of all, this mirror is to die for. I seriously love it and my daughter will go crazy when i show her. Also the Montana spray paint - never heard of it, but appreciate the tip. I'm always bored by the paint color choices I find around town. Have a great weekend!

Courtney said...

I'm sure you could too, Anne. Could you make one for me too, while you're at it? ;-)

annechovie said...

Even better, Courtney, we could get together for a day of blogger/glue gun convention! How fun would that be?

Cheryl said...

I know you could make that - I do it all the time!
