Thrift Store Mirror Makeover

As I mentioned in this post, I found a large mirror at a thrift store for $12 a LONG while ago.  I knew I wanted to paint it but wasn't sure what color.  After much thought and still not coming up with a solution I turned to my hubby.  without hesitation he thought it should be our daughter Heavnely's favorite color, aqua. And since I do plan on putting this in her room one day I figured he could be right.

We now have this

I think it turned out very pretty.  I know she's gonna love it!!!  

Now lets see the before and after, shall we.

I defiantly like how much the color brightens it up.  So have ya'll been up to any thrift store makeovers??

Decision's, Decision's .......

I really, really, desperately  need your help. 

 I bought this mirror at a thrift store

And I'm thinking I really really want to paint it.  However, not sure what color.  

What do you think? Paint or no paint?  And if I do paint, what fun color do you think would look best?  The colors I had in mind are Aqua/teal, cherry red, or bright green.  
Too many decisions for something so minor.  But truly I am stuck :(

P.S. I plan on painting it sometime this weekend.
