Welcome to my home... Decals on mirrors

When we moved into our new home in June of 2007, my first order of business for the living room was to find a good size black mirror to place on an empty wall.  We have vaulted ceilings and it made this blank wall, look even more blank! :o)

I got lucky and found a wood mirror in the size I wanted at a yard sale for only $15. I took it home and painted it black, then of course added my signature... a vinyl decal.  For almost 3 years the mirror with our monogram graced our living room.  Many of our guests came into our home and complimented it... I even got holiday gift requests for similar decals from my friends.  (My friends know they can usually count on a personalized, decal related gift from me).
This week I decided to change it up a bit.  This month marks 3 years in our home, it since it was no longer new, I decided to change it up a bit and bring some "new" back into it.  Both my husband and son were gone all week.  My son, to camp... my husband, on business.  Now my husband knows when he is away, he can usually expect to come home to something either new or different.  It is just the way it is.  :o)  

Well, when my son got home from camp last night, he came into the living room to share his camp experiences with me.  Before he even finished his first sentence, he began to smile... then pointed up.  "I like that Mom!"  Yes, my 12 year old noticed my hard work, and appreciated it.  I must admit, it was rewarding to hear him say that.  Now let's see what my husband has to say about it in a few hours.

  What do you think of it?
