Gah! I’m addicted and holding myself back from giving everything an oil rubbed bronze finish. The two lucky (or 5 if you are an optimist) contestants were that mirror that I painted blue last year and our white couch’s legs.
When I painted that mirror blue, I said that I would love it for a year before changing it, oops.
