Well, these are FINALLY done.
I saw these 2 twin mirrors at a garage sale this summer. I liked them but was SOOO not into picking up another little project right then, so I left them.
Well, they stayed on my mind.
Isn`t that so corny- when other woman have classy things on their mind like pedicures and getting their hair done, I dream of gilded mirrors from tag sales. 🙂
Please feel for me.
Anyways- well, since the nice lady at the garage sale was Naomi, a friend of my friend, Erika…
I “threw my weight around”, and “made some calls”- (called Facebook)- and ended up getting them after all. Delivered to me by my friend Brenda, who works with Naomi.
Only in Holmes Co.
^^Happy to be reunited.
When I started on these, I admit, I kinda thought it was one that might not go down well.
The key to “before” pics is the baddest lighting possible! The crappier the better…
Basement work room lighting: perfecto.
^^I primed the whole thing with 3 coats of spray primer.
Then sprayed the frame part, with matte white paint.
Now ready to carefully apply 2 coats of chalkboard paint to the mirror part, with an artist brush.
I took these LATE at night. Laila has baggy eyes.
She needs Mary Kay to help her.
Here they are finished.
I am happy.
I am so glad I tackled this project.
I LOVE how the corners are in white. PRETTY.
Laila. Go to bed.
In July I am helping with, or doing 3 different parties.
Just throwing around some different sets here.
I think the twins-ies will be a nice addition to some of my get ups this summer…
Tablecloth was from a tag sale for $1.
Tissue flowers are from Tar-shay. (Target)
The lighting must be terr-i-ble because the “red” paper flower for instance is NOT red. It`s very hot pink.
Ok, well, feel the love!
