i pointed to it and said "don't tell me you're throwing that away."
and she said "eh, yeah. i've had it forever and i'm sick of looking at it."
so without much more effort, that poor abandoned mirror was MINE! score!
and i quickly remembered this pin that i repinned not too long ago..
cute and easy idea for perfectly straight stripes, yes? i thought so, too. :)
so after standing in the acrylic paint isle of hobby lobby for a while, completely dumb founded at all the hundreds of color options, i finally settled on two shades of burnt orange. [the "pop" of color in our home. sorry for the poorly lit pictures!]
i painted two coats with the lighter paint, waited for it to dry, then taped & measured off the stripes. then went to town with the darker color.
waited for the dark color to dry and...
here's the finished result!
[this won't be it's permanent home, i'm not hanging it up until we move to our new home in a couple months. just propped it up for picture's sake. :)]
not too shabby for some lazy saturday night crafting. if i do say so myself!
