Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall

This mirror certainly isn’t the fairest one of all!


But it’s mini and we all know that anything mini is extra super-duper cauuute.

And plus, for 69 cents it was practically FREE. How could I not buy it?

So, does anybody know what happens when the whistle blows in five minutes?

(I get a time out?)

Everyone goes to lunch! Which means this mirror will be…


Yessssss! I painted a mirror. 😀 (Can anyone name that movie?)


So I popped it apart and scraped the Goodwill price tag off it.


Then I gave it a good coat of spray paint primer and two coats of spray paint Satin Heirloom White.


Gold, OUT. Heirloom White, IN.

For now it’s in the hall next to the hideous laundry room closet doors.

White on white? Not so much. But once we move, this will look ah-dorable in K Bear’s bedroom… Hmmm… Maybe a new coat of Hot Pink instead of heirloom white…

Now it IS the fairest one of all.


I take that back. K Bear is the fairest one of all…


But the mirror comes in a close 2nd.

(And that is what our kitchen table looks like most of the time. I have to clean it off every time I need a photo of it. :D)

Mirror – 69 cents. Seeing K Bear’s reflection in one of my projects – Priceless.
