Today is Labor Day and as usual, there is a lot of laboring going on in my house. Not much resting at all… and the lawn is still waiting for me. But I did get a lot done today, including painting the garage and fixing up this mirror. Hope you all had a nice day off.
A couple months back I was at ReStore where I bought this mirror for next to nothing (I think it was $5 since everything was 30% off that day).My daughter used it as her make-up mirror until she started college a few weeks ago. Well, I wanted a mirror in my living room so I ‘played around’ with this one and now it’s hanging on the wall.
I removed the top part, sanded and painted it. Then I sanded again but I wasn’t happy with the ‘cut-outs’ on each side. They were too perfect. My solution: I cut a few pieces of wood chips from an old piece of fence wood. The wood chips are not perfect and that’s why I like them. Now, the mirror has character!

I like this so much better than the original! I would have never thought to change the shape of the top like that.

Thanks you, Melody. When you don’t have much to work with, you get creative. Love your purple DIY art.

Pretty clever with the wood pieces. Thanks for sharing on Merry Monday!
