Hello sweet Friends and welcome to day #5 of this fun thrifty series! Isn’t it fun to see what becomes of these thrift store and yard sale finds? Today I’m sharing how I turned this plain thrift store mirror into a one-of-a-kind piece.
Here is what I started with:
It was marked $8.25 but it was half off.
Yesterday I asked if you thought I kept it as a mirror. Let’s see if you guessed right….I did!
There wasn’t really anything special about this mirror as it was, but giving it a new paint job and adding a few rosettes gave it such a sweet new look:
Kind of a shabby chic look?
I was almost tempted to keep this here, I liked it so much.
Looks so pretty with my entry table I redid in my Favorite Fabric from Hancock Fabrics.
I did this last Summer, as you can tell by the beautiful hydrangeas from my garden. I cut them for my house all Summer long. If you have a spot in your yard that is sunny only early in the morning or very late in the afternoon, but shady for the rest of the day, plant a hydrangea or two. The Endless Summer varieties are my favorite.
These white ones are called, “Blushing Bride”.
Back to the mirror…those flowers are pretty too, no?
If you’re interested in making some yourself, I put together a video tutorial last winter. Just watch that hot glue…it’s a real pain. 😉
If you have trouble viewing or it’s buggy, see it HERE on YouTube.
(I know now not to record in portrait mode sorry about that!)
And here’s a bonus makeover!
I did one of these just like this before and it sold so quickly, I had to buy another when I saw a good deal on one:
Here it is after a few hours in front of HGTV making rosettes…
This would be so sweet in a little girl’s room don’t you think?
I just love the shabby sweet feel of these little rosettes!
I’ll be back tomorrow to share a do-over of an this wooden tote that just would not sell in my booth:
UPDATE: Kablam! See it HERE now!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
