Thrift Store Mirror Makeover

Oh what a beautiful day we had yesterday here in Tennessee. I spent the morning at the doctor for an OB check up. Listening to a tiny heartbeat will always be one of my favorite sounds in the entire world! I then got to come home and spend the day outside working on this project.....

I got this IKEA framed mirror at one of my favorite thrift stores for only $1

I sanded it down (I'm glad this mirror was small, because it took forever!)

I gave it a coat of high gloss while paint....after it dried, I distressed it a little and added vinyl letters I cut using my Cricut

I added flowers cut from scrapbook paper with my Cricut and covered the entire frame with homemade Mod Podge (1part water to 1 part glue) 

We still have to wait 8 weeks to find out if we are having a girl or boy, but I would love this in a little girl's room. And, I kind of already bought a Pottery Barn crib bumper at a thrift store that would work perfect with this! ( I know I am seriously jumping the gun, but it was only $5, what's a girl to do?)

  1. Hi Carmella! That frame is absolutely adorable and I agree would be perfect in a little girl's room...or really any room! :-) I cracked up about you having already bough a PB bumper on the chance you might be having a girl. I bought a "girl" stocking the year before my daughter was born! We must be kindred spirits. Thanks so much for linking this up to Inspiration Friday this week and we hope to see much more of you in the future!

  2. Love this craft!!! Thanks so much for linking up to my "say what Saturday" party!!!!!
