Through the looking glass


I picked up this stunning old mirror at a garage sale, as you can see it was a lovely golden colour with the mirror completely intact. However I had little to no use for a golden mirror in my house, so it was time to find a new purpose for it.


 First I painted it a pale mint, almost light aqua colour (love this colour). I had to do a few coats to really cover up that gold.

That was the easy part, next task was to cut out the shape in wood.


The difficulty with the shape was if it was slightly off it wouldn’t fit! I got there in the end painted it with blackboard paint and

ta- dah…
