Sarah’s Mirror

This may be the slowest project in blogging history, but that’s alright.  That’s how I roll sometimes.

Sarah has been crazy busy working on competing for the The Biggest Loser’s At-Home prize, so this room makeover has taken the slow boat!  However, I do have another little sneak peak. 

Not too long ago, I saw a quote on Pinterest that really caught my eye and screamed Sarah’s name…

Soooo, I teamed up with one of our new sponsors, Shelly from Say Anything Expressions, on a fun little project!

I have a sad old mirror that has been stuffed in a closet for years, because it was ugly, and I couldn’t find a place for it in it’s current state…


…but with a little love and some spray paint, I knew it would be perfect for Sarah’s room makeover.  So I dusted it off, rolled up my sleeves and went to work.

I covered the mirror with some old wrapping paper and painters tape. Sprayed on some primer and then a couple of coats of White Gloss Valspar spray paint.

Then I went to town with my trusty sander, and added some character.  I know, why was it called ugly before, but now that it’s white and roughed up we say it has character?  I don’t know, I don’t make up the design rules.  All I know is that It makes it look lovely…

I cleaned it all up and installed Shelly’s vinyl.  I wanted the quote to look like it was etched onto the mirror rather than opaque vinyl, let me know what you think…

Didn’t Shelly do a FANTASTIC job?!  I LOVE how it turned out!

Can’t wait to show off the final project!!
