{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!

  1. Awesome blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Cheers

  6. Howdy! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog article or vice-versa? My blog covers a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  8. Woah! I’m really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a superb job with this. In addition, the blog loads very quick for me on Opera. Exceptional Blog!

  10. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?

  11. Hi there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
