Once upon a time I scored a gorgeous mirror to hang above the table in my entryway. I lovingly painted and antiqued the frame. Then I hung it in it’s new home with great pride. Thirty minutes later, my gorgeous mirror came crashing down the the ground and shattered into a million pieces.
I may or may not have cried like a little girl.
After I picked up the pieces of my poor mirror, I realized that while the frame was broken, it just might be salvageable. So I stored it away in my garage until inspiration struck.
A few months later, inspiration struck, and her name was Miss Mustard Seed.
I headed to Home Depot and bought a sheet of 1/4 inch think MDF, some black chalkboard paint and some grey primer. Several days of priming and painting later and this is what I’ve got:
Isn’t she lovely? Nevermind my chicken-scratch. I have the worst handwriting in the world.
I love the details on the corners and sides of the frame.
I’m pretty happy with how it turned out. And I’m very glad I was able to create something pretty out of my gorgeous broken mirror.
