Have you ever thought to yourself, "That project looks pretty easy. I could get that done today"? That's what I said to myself after I saw the tutorial at Salvage Savy showing how to make an antiqued mirror that props up against the wall (despite the warning in the tutorial that this is not easy). I thought I would get it done before Mr. Jones got home from work. It has been 3 months since I started the project. Not done yet.
I was going to blog about this project when I was done, but I saw that Nester is having an "It's Not Perfect But It's Beautiful" party, so I thought I would show you my mirror in all its imperfect glory (The other reason I'm doing this today is that I should be studying for a biology test. Perfect day to blog).
If you are wondering why there is a towel jammed between the sideboard and the wall, I did that in case the 3M wasn't strong enough and the tiles fell off the wall. I didn't want my dogs to get their heads chopped off while napping.
So that's it. The project is almost finished because I have a few more tiles to fix up, but it's looking good. We may even frame it some day. But maybe not.
Here the link to Nester's party if you want to stop by there. Here is a link to my Pinterest board of mirrors if you want to see that.
