Ceiling Medallion

My daughter and I bought a ceiling medallion similar to this one for very little at a garage sale.
Not knowing what we would do with them we each bought one.
I am posting this on Thrifty Thursday

This is what I decided to do with mine. Using Apple Barrel paints, I painted it red, then used a brown watered down I  did a wash over it all. I then came back with gold and painted all the circles. I bought a round mirror at Hobby Lobby (using the 40% off coupon from the newspaper) and hot glued it on.

I have only $2-$3 in it total. I have it on our piano and really like how it turned out.
If  I get tired of the color I can simply repaint it.
I plan on using it with my Christmas decorations this year on our mantel.
