A mirror makeover

Happy Tuesday my blog friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend---I sure did!

Today I am enjoying my day and crafting away.  Here is one of my projects!





I found this treasure of a mirror awhile ago at a thrift store for $4.00.  It was gold and a bit beat up but I knew it would fit right into my home with a little TLC.  I painted it a nice soft teal at our old house this winter and then packed it away for our move...


So today I got this pretty mirror out found the perfect place for it---right above our bed....
It is the perfect piece to distract from some of the more modern furniture that we have in the room.  Since the mirror was going to be over the bed and not super functional as a mirror I decided to add some vinyl and a meaningful quote.


I wanted an etched glass look on the mirror so I used my silhouette and the frosted vinyl that they sell.


What do you think?


And I must use my mirror reflection as an opportunity to show off my sweet garage sale finds from the past few weeks that have landed in my bedroom---how do you like the vintage alarm clock and the primitive ladder I found?



Ahhh my little home is coming together one little project at a time and one little treasure of a garage sale find at a time!

I am linking up at some of these wonderful places---they are all fabulous places to be inspired!

The mirror is lovely. This post makes me so excited for those garage/yard sales. Perhaps I'll have to plan a trip to the thrift store this weekend.
