Major Mirror Makeover

Are you gals sick of hearing about my Mom Cave yet!?!
I am sorry to keep you hanging ... but I just want it to feel "done" before I finally post the whole reveal.
It will be soon, I promise.
In fact, I guarantee I will post it within a week.
I think it will be worth the wait .... at least I sure hope you think so!

Meanwhile, I'm going to show you another mini project from the Mom Cave.
And here it is!
But here's the thing.....
It started like THIS:
Hi, Stella! (aka: best doggy in the world!)
So .... I taped off the mirror and painted it with Rust-oleum's Claret Wine.
Spray paint, of course.  :-)
And then, I painted three coats of Rust-oleum's chalkboard paint over the mirror.
(*Note: Make sure you wait a LONG time between coats - like 8+ hours.  Trust me, I learned this the hard way!  Oops!:)~
No, I'm not crazy -- just bein' goofy!

But in the end, I got it all fixed up and pretty!
Added one of my favorite Pinterest quotes with my beloved chalk ink marker, and called it GOOD!  
Then I took an old frame, put a nail in it and hung this baby in my Mom Cave! (aka: my new craft room that I'm going to show you in a week or less!)
Whadya think?
I love it.  It adds a bold contrast of color with my desk and command center, and it is really helping to pull everything in the room together.  
Just you wait and see! ;)~

  1. Gorgeous Bec!! Yeah, I've been experimenting with magnetic paint and chalkboard paint and it's kinda frustrating sometimes!! I think maybe you have the trick!! I'll try to wait more time in between coats... :)
