My plan for today was to show you the “door décor” I have been working on…but it isn’t quite right yet. So instead I have a fun makeover I’ll share that took little time and effort to do. I came across a mirror at a flea market that looked just the right size for my entryway. It was a little beat up, but that’s never deterred me before. A little paint could give it a whole new life. The gentleman behind the folding table said, “Two dollars.” I couldn’t even counter…two bucks is two bucks. I said without hesitation, “deal” and was happily on my way. I love mirrors in entryways. They give you the opportunity to check yourself out before leaving, and your guests the opportunity to do the same when they first enter. As a busy mom I’ve found it’s so helpful to know that yes, I did put on mascara today or no Kate, get back inside and fix that crazy hairdo you have. Here is the mirror “before.”
And here it is after a little spray paint:
Not bad for just a few buckaroos. After spraying the mirror I roughed it up a bit with some sand paper to give it a more cottage-y look. Then I printed a "G" from the computer (just from Microsoft Word) then traced it onto the mirror. I used my crafters paint to fill in the outline, then used the sand paper again, just over the painted letter...ta-da! Looks kind of like I stenciled it right? OK I'm off to play with the kiddos...Hope you enjoyed today’s makeover. Have a great day!
