I've posted a few times about my Happy Girl's yard sale dresser. However, the dresser came with this matching mirror (minus the glass). Its been hanging here in the hall for 5 years and sometimes when I walk by I think of how I really need to do something with it. Paint, or something! And, its too high. Need to lower it. (Again, sorry about the weird lighting and my lack of camera skills.)
So yesterday morning, I took the mirror outside and quickly sprayed it cream with leftover spray paint from the dining room table project. I didn't care about covering it completely. I just wanted it lighter for the next step. Little girls sleeping, I sat out on my patio and covered the entire mirror with shells and one of my starfish!
I'm going to leave it where it is for now, but I think I may actually hang it on my patio. There is a section of brick wall on my patio that that I've always wanted to brighten up. I think the mirror might work there and the shells seem appropriate for an outdoor space .
I know this looks like it took forever, but like all my other projects I did it while my girls were napping. All those shells took less than 2 hours to glue on.
This project wasn't supposed to happen today. I had planned to paint some frames, but couldn't find the crackel medium in my mess of stuff. I'm wondering if I even have it anymore. I think I may just have to paint and distress instead ... but that's a project for next week!

(P.S. I usually schedule posts a day ahead and lately, my scheduled posts have not been posting until I come back and post them myself. Anyone else having this problem?)
