I bought this mirror (at Hobby Lobby) about 5 yrs ago with the intention of painting it or somehow transforming it into something more fun. It went from black...
...to bright. A little too bright!It went from the girl's room, where it was never hung, to the storage room in the basement, to the garage. In fact, I believe I pulled it out of the trash a couple of times when my husband tried to sneak it in there!
I finally decided what it needed about a week ago...BLING!
Basically, I just used Mod Podge to attach the strips of fabric onto each surface, then added the ruffled flowers and trim pieces. I used whatever beads/crafting jewels I could find around the house, and then started cutting up old pieces of jewelry. After a while, I just started gluing whole pieces of jewelry right on the mirror. There's actually an entire bracelet wrapped around one edge.
NOW, I'm finally happy with this mirror and it has found it's place in our house!! Super fun!!
