$6 Thrift Store Mirror Makeover

Beautiful friends, I have another cheapie thrift store makeover for ya'll today! This mirror has been in my stash for probably two years now: It was only $6 so I really couldn't pass it up. It originally had hinges on either side that probably attached to two smaller mirrors on either side, and sat on a dresser. I removed the hinges and filled the holes several months ago and this is how it has sat in my storage room ever since. I decided to pull it out and just start … [Read more...]

Faux Etched Glass Mirror

Hello amazing friends! I have a fun project to share with ya'll today! It all started with this frame I found at the thrift store for $4: It was going to become one of the chalk boards that Jack was working on for my booth, but then I decided I wanted try something fun with it at the last minute. I found a piece of glass to fit it from one of the other frames he was working on and set it aside. I've included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I use. Here is what … [Read more...]

Mirror turned Chalkboard

Hello amazing friends! I have another makeover to share with ya'll from this pile of goodies I picked up last Saturday: It's this mirror I scored for $4.98: If you missed what I did with the baskets, see them HERE. I had passed it up twice before since the mirror in it was so heavy. Then when I saw it last Saturday, it had been marked down again and it occurred to me that it would make a fantastic chalkboard! Don't you think? This wall is in our kitchen and I knew I … [Read more...]

Frame and Mirror Upcycle

Happy Tuesday, awesome Friends!! I spent the better part of this past weekend in my paint pants painting all the trim in my kitchen and this hallway that leads to the back stairs: That includes NINE doorways, 3 large windows in the kitchen (one is actually a door), and five interior doors (laundry room, garage, storage room, door to FROG, and pantry), plus all the base molding and chair rail that connects them! This just seemed like such a daunting task, but I am so happy it is … [Read more...]

Antique Mirror Repurposed

Welcome lovely Friends to day #4 of my March Madness, 31 Thrifty Makeovers in 31 Days series! I shared a peek of this antique mirror I found at the thrift store in yesterday's post: These old mirrors are SUPER heavy and the back was falling out, but for $9.98 I snapped it up. After I painted the frame I went to clean up the mirror to put it back in, and it was so scratched. I know it looks great in the photo above, but that was taken in November back before I turned the mirror loose in … [Read more...]
