Antique Mall Find

My sweet husband and I made a little stop off at my favorite Antique Mall this weekend and ventured out with this beauty for only $25!



She's going in the hallway soon, but I am still contemplating if I want to paint her or not. I really like the gold as-is, but spray paint is calling my name, too! : )

Beautiful! I think it would look great either as is or spray painted - you can't go wrong!

ms. less is always more said...

oh it's gorgeous! Tough call on whether to paint it or not as gold is coming back in style again... either way it's a great find for $25!

I don't think I could help spray painting it. But I love the gold so much. I cant' wait to see it hung. Great find!

Jesse said...

Gorgeous! Love it!

Shannon said...

Love it as is!

I say leave it the way it is. Love the look of green and gold that is popping up now.

Design Darling said...

lucky you! definitely paint it. all that ornate detail would be great in a bright color.

This is so beautiful! Just came across an image I stored for a future project. I'm going to email it to you. Maybe it'll help you decide what to do.

It's gorgeous! I really like it as is about I always have a problem saying no to a little spray paint!! LOL

Heather J said...

pretty find. i'd say leave it gold for a while but i understand the urge to spray. i guess you could always spray paint it back to gold. :)

Aura said...

What about a wash over the gold with a rag? Or stain? that would be pretty, too! I have an almost identical one (but smaller) with a broken mirror in the middle that I've probably had for five years and never done anything with. I had every intention of painting it, but I never seem to remember it when it comes to projects. Now you inspired me to pull that thing out!

Mary Catherine Sears said...

What a great mirror! Lucky Girl! Go check out the Haven & Home blog...today's post has a room that shows a similar mirror in gold.

Just my opinion, but I love an ornate frame painted in a fun color. I painted one green and hung it in my master bedroom. It really cheers things up. I think it would work ideally in your home.

Kristen said...

Aww man what a good find!! I love it and I say go for the spray paint

Susan Bang said...

beautiful!! I'm so jealous!!!

ashlina said...

great find....spray paint all the way.

Pink is screaming out to me. Although, I'm sure white would be more appropriate in your space. :) Nice!

christi said...

Amanda said...

Wow! Now why can't I ever find deals like that?? :)

Charlotte: One Project at a Time said...

Love it!!! Great find

dolores @ "Welcome to My Humble Ablog" said...

I say 'paint it!'

Leigh said...

Wow! Are you speaking of the st clair mall?

Suzie said...

Lovely! I'm with you-spray paint!

Freckles Chick said...

You have THE best antique stores!

As much as I love the gold (it just speaks to me in that "stay true to the era" way) I think a bold lacquer red or aqua would look divine!

What a find! I would definitely spray paint. But, I spray paint everything :)
