Mirror Re-Do

It all started with this package I received from Suzanne.
(More on what was inside the package at a later post).

I loved the "underside" of the brown wrapping paper she used. I scanned it and used it as the background of my header.

When Suzanne told me where she had gotten it, I went and bought myself 3 rolls! I've been using it here and there.

Then I used it to revamp this mirror.

I ripped up pieces just because I wanted a non-fussy look and decoupaged them using Mod Podge.

On one side I "painted" the shape of a heart with the Mod Podge and filled it in with vintage buttons.

I cut a piece of chicken wire, folded it up in the shape of a heart, and glued it on the opposite side.

Finished mirror.


I tried out a couple of different embellishments on the chicken wire. A silk flower and a picture clipped on with butterfly clips.
I hung it in the master bedroom, on top of my nightstand, so I love having the picture of the Sun Kissed Husband and I (even though it's from a gizillion years ago).  The picture was taken a week after our engagement.  He was going to propose that weekend at the Marine Corp Ball but couldn't wait and asked me to marry him the weekend before.

Do you have any romantic mementos in your bedroom?

I have a shell from the Bahamas where we took our one and only cruise we went on. And a photo that my son took of us years ago. He's was probably only about 5 when he took it but it came out so well.

The mirror came out really cute. Can't wait to see what Suzanne sent you. Now, are you going to tell us where you found that cute paper? I love it!

The paper came from Dollar General, Anita.

Very crafty. I personally just go with stark walls and pre-made frames, but that's how I roll...

Holly said...

Wow! You are so creative. Never would have thought to do something like that. Love the picture of you with your man!

Yanet - You have the mirror such a neat unique piece. Very pretty! I love the simplicity of the beautiful paper. Thanks so much for linking to The Sunday Showcase Party - I greatly appreciate it. I have featured this Sunday. Have a wonderful week.
