A Mirror Makeover

My Good friend needed help with her kids' rooms.  I told her I would be happy to help!  I also said that I could do each bedroom for $100!  So, thrift store here I come!  Here is a mirror that I found and madeover for one of her girl's bedroom!

Here is how it started out!
$10 Mirror
Wasn't really going for the Safari
theme, so it had to be changed!

Had some damage that I fixed up
with some good 'ol wood putty!

Got out my trusty cans of primer and paint

Primed and painted the edges

Layed out my scrapbook paper and
decided which order I wanted them to go in.
Paper $4

I took each paper one by one and layed the straight edge of the paper against the straight edge of the mirror and then with my finger I just ran along the curve to dent the paper.  I then cut it out, layed them in place and applied modge podge to the mirror and layed down my paper.  Be sure to press well to get out all the bubbles.

Here it is all done!


I hope they will be Happy with the results!
Total cost $14


  1. I LOVE what you did with the mirror. I need to modge podge the Letter E to hang Elizabeth's bows & flowers from, but I'm scared to. I know I'll mess it up. I wish I could see things the way you do - All I would have seen in the mirror is how it didn't match any theme in my house.

  2. That is adorable Sunshine. Good Job!!
