Sad truth is that I ran out of spray paint before I could get a second coat on them. But, that will be quickly remedied with at trip to the local Home depot. Just ran out of day before doing so. I love the way they look already! I gotta give credit to Kelly from "The Moon and Me" for inspiring me with this idea which she posted here.
My beautiful mirror has
been calling out to be painted black. As I was already spray painting on this,
it simply made sense to give the mirror just what it was asking for.
I prepped it with my
favorite dollar store wrapping paper and painters tape. When Christmas is over
I go buy 3 or 4 rolls of dollar store wrapping paper because I use it for many
different things. This is just one of the many ways I use it.
It took roughly 2-3 coats
to get it looking just as I have been imagining. It was hard to be patient
while it dried. I wanted to get it hung up as soon as possible. Now that it is
up, I love it.
Now the angle of the photo
that I took is a little odd because it was really late at night and I was
looking tad hooky. Alright, I was in pj’s
while hanging up my mirror and toilet paper art. My hair was scary. I knew that if I got in
front of that mirror to take a picture I might scare everyone, because you
would have seen my reflection. I don’t
wan to scare anyone just yet. It is not Halloween yet.
started this project last Tuesday. Funny that it is finally ready for show~n ~
tell today. It took me a week to finish it. Now that is because I work a 6 hours day 5 days a week and then get distracted by children that seem to need
me. (me smiling)
There is nothing sweeter than coming home from a long hard
day at work to a can of spray paint. That is exactly what I did yesterday after calling
to wish my mom a Happy “19” birthday. Something she told her students (she was
an elementary school teacher) for years. I wish y'all could have seen the look on my Hubbies face when I told
him what this was made of…he just smiled and shook his head. It was a priceless
moment. It has been such a great way to chillax a little everyday. Finally over
the weekend it was done and ready to be spray painted. But, I did not have the
time. S o, it really delighted my heart to come home from work to this project.I think it turned out fabulous.
