{why i love thrift stores} striped mirror makeover

 

Check out what I found on 50% day at Goodwill the other day…I paid $3!

It was propped up behind a bunch of pictures and I knew I could make something awesome out of it.

 

First I covered the mirror with newspaper and blue tape.

 

Then I painted it white and used painter’s tape to eyeball diagonal stripes.

(I was going to do chevron, but decided I didn’t want to attempt all of those zig zags – I’m not much of a measurer)

 

Next I used yellow spray paint (Rust-oleum) over the top.

Last, I pulled off the tape and this is what came out!

 

I think I’m going to use it on this big empty wall -I’m attempting to put some sort of gallery here:

I’m still a long way away from getting everything up on the wall, but when I do, I’ll post pictures!

Kids’ Cafe Table

I loved this table the moment I saw it…but I have nowhere for it.

 

Nowhere in my whole house.

Except the playroom.

 

So I stuck it in there by the play kitchen and put 2 little chairs at it, but it just looked too plain.

I pulled out some red spray paint {Rust-oleum  Sunrise Red} and spiced it up a bit.

{sanded lightly first, then sprayed 3-4 very light coats of red and 1 coat of spray polyurethane}

 

It looks fabulous in our playroom and my lil’ man Z loves it!

 

 

He says it matches Lightning McQueen now.
