Altered Mirror



I haven't had much time to create this last week because I've been working on my house. But I did manage to finish the mirror I got from the thrift store. This mirror was only $3. Here is the ugly before picture, with a not so ugly cutie in it.



And here are the after pictures







I used my Beautiful Life Unity stamps on it. In the top I put some sheet metal to make a little magnetic board for a picture or some art. I think it will be so cute in her new bedroom. Her bedroom is going to be soft yellow, pink, and black. Won't this be darling against a soft yellow wall? I also made a matching door hanger to go with it.






Here are a couple updated pictures of our house. The siding is FINALLY done, and I only have the front of the office to grout the rock. We're going to do the driveway probably next week. YAY! It finally feels like we're getting closer.
