{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!
