First, I covered the mirror with painters tape and paper. Take your time getting in the corners.
Give it a good coat of spray paint, I choose white. Then I attached a pretty ribbon to the back. I just used thumbtacks, but you could staple or glue it. Then, I added a shabby chic fabric rosette to give it a little more "something." Then I made sure to hang at my daughter's height. :)
Do not notice the messy room in the background. But do notice one of the sources, you can see the baby dumping out a box of his sisters beads onto the floor. I'm starting to question why I would put the two messiest people in the house in the same room!
To make the flower rosette, tear a piece of fabric about 1.5 inches wide and 44 inches in length. Sew a long basting stitch down one side, pull on a thread until the fabric draws up into a ruffle, twist into a flower shape and stitch on a button catching all layers to secure. If you don't have fabric, you could use ribbon, or a even a fake flower with the stem snipped off.
I love the mirror and so does my daughter!
I'm linking up to Transformation Thursday. :)
