Before you start complaining.
It has been a LONG time since I have posted a thrift store mirror to chalkboard project.
And I couldn’t help myself.
I had to share this one with you.
You will thank me. I promise.
What do you do with a bu-gly, $3.00, thrift-store, pretend wood, old dresser mirror?
Isn’t she pretty?
Tall and regal.
This is the before.
Hey Becca Roo!
The mirror is about 4 foot tall.
And it made my ankles look like “ca-nkles” and my butt look fat. I knew when I saw my reflection, that the mirror must be broken and made into a chalkboard. : )
This fake wood, scroll work, needed painting and distressing!
What does this remind you of?
Do you know what I’m talking about?
I’m talking about this……
Do you see it?
I loved that movie………
It also reminded me of this……
I have a feeling the style must be the “Beauty and the Beast” style.
Think I would make it on HGTV with my description of the style?
Here is a reminder of the “before”.
And the “after”…….
You can’t blame me for sharing it now, can you?
The CeCe’s paint adhered to the “fake” wood without sanding or priming AND the details showed up so pretty with the light distressing. The “Rustoleum” chalk board paint was painted right on the mirror, like before.
Without the white paint it looks more like the clock in Beauty and the Beast.
And do I even dare say, that I am also in love with the white and black contrasting colors?
I love it!
It is my first white framed chalkboard.
Let me know your thoughts!
It will be making it’s way to “Beaches” soon.
I will miss it!
Are you still passing those bu-gly, cheap mirrors?
What are you waiting for?
