Thank you all so much for your kudos on my curtains! I am so happy with them, and I feel like a whole new world is opened up to me, now that I am not so afraid of the sewing machine! Yippee!
A new challenge: I recently bought a beat-up mirror for $10 at a thrift store. It is round, and so I had hopes of making it look something like this:
Or maybe like the one over the fireplace here:
Or even the gorgeous mirror above the bed in my inspiration photo from the amazing designer Heather Chadduck:
Sadly, right now the mirror looks like this. And yes, that is me in my bare feet in my oh-so-glamorous garage. One of these days I am going to puncture something.
Right now, the mirror's frame is made of what appears to be plaster. I am thinking it was a builder's special awhile back, then got abandoned. But I have hope!
What I'd really like to do is add some dimension to the frame. Something to keep it from looking flat and boring. And of course I would paint it. But how do I add the dimension so that it looks like the other mirrors in this post rather than, well, how it looks now? Trim? Nailhead details? Something else that I could glue to it? What do you think?
If anyone has any brilliant ideas, or knows of some cool product that would help me on my quest to bring life to this boring mirror, please share!
And please don't judge me by my garage.
