My 3 dollar mirror!

I always loved this mirror

I found it at Craftnest.com  HERE
I couldn't find any garden stakes, so I used coffee sticks. haha
A $2 mirror and $1 coffee sticks

 
I put a plate in the middle to keep the placement of the sticks all even, and glued the sticks on


I was listening to the Dead Weather, so I was happy!


Then it was time to paint
I also chose silver! (not black, aren't you surprised)


(leftover from the silver pumpkins)


And VOILA


I added a shelf but now do you think I should paint the mirror black? hahahah


It is in the hall next to the coat rack

 I think it turned out pretty good for a $3 mirror!

I am going to add it to the DIY day at a Soft Place to Land!

  24. LOVE IT. I just busted the mirror in our upstairs hallway last week - 7 years bad luck for me :(. I might have to give this one a shot. How did you hang the mirror?
