You Take My Breath Away.......

We put our Christmas tree up on Tuesday & the kids and I spent the whole day Wednesday decorating the rest of the house. We had company coming to stay with us, so we were busy!! I hope everyone out there had a wonderful Thanksgiving. My family and I spent this holiday & weekend with family & our very good friends from Nebraska. We had such a good time eating, shopping & catching up!! I miss them already....back to reality and blogging of course ;)

Like so many other people out there, I am totally inspired by Pinterest....I love it when I see something and am able to re-create it using what I have. This is one of those times when I stumbled upon something & just happened to have exactly what I needed in my garage & basement. THAT makes me soooooo happy!! You can see my inspiration photo here if you would like :) But, here is my version:

Breathtakingly Beautiful

To truly be able to appreciate the beauty of this mirror I think you need to see the BEFORE shots.

From the dump
Battered & broken
Covered in stickers

I scraped off all the stickers with a razor blade & cleaned it up. The mirror frame was falling apart so my husband helped me wood glue it back together. I spray painted it & reassembled it. I wanted this done so bad I had to spray paint and then bring it inside to dry since it was too cold for my paint to dry outside.

This is the same color I used on my cabinet door  project.

The details.....

I had the tree, so just had my daughter help me make a paper chain out of some old thrift store sheet music.

Another easy project with no money out of my pocket!!
