{mirror questions}

> I am sporadic on my postings – I am sorry :)  Its not that i am not busy – it just hasn’t been the fun stuff that you guys all want to see, unless you want to see scrubbing cabinet doors, mopboards and organizing drawers?  I have started on a couple of small projects though – that hopefully i can show you in the next couple of days. Until then, i have had quite a few questions on one part of my mirror molding that i just posted about.  People are asking about how the side of  the mirror looks.  Whether i overlapped my molding to cover the edge of the mirror – or how i dealt with that. All i did was line up my molding even with the mirror – then painted the edge of the molding black  to match the mirror.  So now when you look […]

> Finally!  This mirror has been done for a little bit but i have just had too much going on to write this post (or any post!), but here it is… First i have to tell you that this my third mirror and my last, yeah!!!  And all 3 have been done different ways.  I just went with a different style in each room and just made it up as i went along – that’s how i do things :) For this mirror, i had a little challenge.  You can see in the 1st pic that for some reason the builder put a plug-in – in the mirror!  Why?!  I have no idea why they couldn’t move it over a foot – but instead i had this lovely mirrored, beveled, 80’s looking plug cover plate right smack in the bottom corner of my mirror. I knew that the plug in […]

{another framed builder mirror + a book wreath}

> Recently i decided to change up my 1/2 bathroom just a little.  I had a cute old 4 pane window above the toilet that i put different fabric in each of the panes, but since i repainted the bathroom a while ago it just wasn’t working.  And i totally could of just changed out the fabric but i was ready for a change, and plus i wanted to make a book wreath (like everyone else, i know) and this was a good spot to put it! Before..(the walls are not this color at all, they are a light “mocha” color – don’t know what happened with this pic?) Then i made a book wreath – sorry no pictures of the “making” of said wreath – but just google it and they are everywhere :)   I really like the wreath but it needs something, i think maybe it needs […]

>   1st – i looked high & low for pics of the bathroom from the beginning – before any paint and the standard builder mirror, but they were no where to be found 2nd – this room has 0 natural light – the pics were hard to get – really this room is so bright and fresh looking the pics just don’t do it justice, oh well, you will just have to take my word for it:) Ok, on to the re-do.  I painted this bathroom shortly after we moved in (3 years ago).  I used a goldish-yellow paint and stenciled a swirly pattern on the walls.  I also put up bead board and framed the builder mirror.  The bathroom was ok – but since i repainted my house about a year ago it just wasn’t working out for me anymore.  Plus a little re-do is fun – and […]
