Who hasn't fallen in love with something from Susie and Mark's shop Posh on Palm in Sarasota, Florida or sighed over the pages of lovely photos of their shop or home from the pages of our favorite, Romantic Homes and Victoria Magazines. They are such a gifted couple and their brilliant teamwork have created some of the most amazing spaces and furniture creations. This amazing mirror is just one of the many things that I have been longing for but my spending allowance was always too thin whenever I visited their lovely store.
Until one day I saw it. Hidden, filthy, heavy as heck, but loaded with the prettiest of details and within my budget "that day". So I, well, rather they loaded it in to the back of my pickup and off it went to sit for months in my piles of projects in waiting in our garage.
That day I had a couple of choices. The one the guys are carrying had the pretty details but was short and without a shelf. The one below did not have the details that I loved but it had the little shelf and dirt enough to pot a plant.
Months passed until my sweet hunk of a man had the time he needed and he had decided he had seen this ugly dirty mirror for as long as he could handle it and the project began.
I too have a wonderful man like Susie. He has learned that building things is way up there on my list of what makes a man AMAZING.
The day that he built this mirror, there was also a newly created sign on the door that read, NO GIRLS ALLOWED!
See those mums? I had placed them on his work bench after staging a Farm Table that he had built for the shop and forgotten to put them away.
Well, I know better now. lol
The frame that I bought had all the pretty details but did not have th shelf so he built the storage bench for me. Now it's my turn to get busy on the seat cushion. Hubby did a great job, don't you think? He is a treasure for sure and I love him dearly!
