Remember this post from, ahem, over a year ago? https://makingmyhouseahome.wordpress.com/2012/02/01/free-mirror-means-progress/
Well, this spring break I finally framed and decorated the mirror in my dining room.
In my mind, it had seemed like a complicated project, but it turned out to be quite simple and even fun!
The project involved measuring and cutting trim to fit the mirror. Then, using an adhesive glue, the trim was attached to the mirror. I then caulked the cracks and painted the whole frame. Finally, the best part was decorating it!
1) a chalkboard/music sheet banner that spells out “love”…..I had made the banner a while ago and now finally got to use it!
2) a wreath I made from scratch. It turned out smaller than I would have liked, but I’m not about to make another one any time soon!
3) a cross-stitch picture that I picked up at an estate sale last week. I’m not sure if it’s staying on the mirror or if I’ll frame it, but for now I like it there.
Here’s some close-ups:
