This week has been a challenge. My back went out and I could not get out of bed. After a couple of days I was able to stand and walk around a bit. Even though I was feeling better, I still stayed mostly in our bedroom to rest. I know myself to well. If I were downstairs, I would be looking at all the projects I had planned to do and try to do them. In doing so, I would have put myself back to square one. It took an entire week, but I am back to normal and ready to get going. The first thing I did was refinish an antique mirror. I am planning on using it in the new powder room. I found the mirror at Rehouse Architectural Salvage in Rochester, NY. I bought it at the same time I purchased the utility sink I just refinished . The bones of the mirror were great, but some of the detail work had been painted and there were panels on the sides I did not like. But I knew it would be a beautiful piece in the end.
