Mirror Metamorphosis

I found these 2 matching mirrors at the Goodwill. They were very large, and had pretty floral detailing on them. They were filthy, and when cleaned off, the gold was way too bright.
I laid them out on a drop cloth, taped off the mirror and used 2 coats of white gloss spray paint to transform them.
The white really brings out the details.
Not sure where to put them, but I think they will look pretty hanging side by side, or opposite of each other.
