I don’t blame you. I have been such a slacker with her room so I have been working on all the little details lately and have been so happy with the progress I have been making. I will reveal the room soon but for now I have a little tutorial for you.
Do you ever find an awesome picture or mirror but hate the frame color – and you flip it over to find that you practically have to tear the whole thing apart just to get the picture or mirror out?
That happened to me. I almost put the mirror back because I hate not being able to get the frame off easily – but decided to bite the bullet and just go for it! When it comes to crafting this is a huge hurtle for me - I don't know why but I am such a chicken when it comes to this but really the solution is so easy and I love the results!
I found this really cute mirror at Hobby Lobby and even though I like black, I wanted it for my daughters room.
First: I wiped it down and cleaned it off.
Second: I used masking tape and taped as close to the frame as I could.
Third: I used my razor blade and made nice clean cuts so I had nice clean edges all the way around.
Fourth: I used plastic garbage bags and lots of masking take to fill in the remaining area. Make sure every edge is sealed so there isn’t a chance for any paint to get underneath.
Fifth: I primed it.
Sixth: I sprayed it “Everglade Glen” by Valspar – I love it!
Last: After it is totally dry – pull off your masking take and plastic and enjoy!
I love it! And after seeing how easy it was to work around the mirror – I will totally be keeping my eyes open for darling things cemented into their frame instead of avoiding them!
Stick around – I have some more little projects I have been working on!
