She is back!!!

Have you ever held on to something that you just couldn't throw away no matter how ugly it was!?

(Of course not!)

This mirror has been with me for a while now! It has been painted and painted over and over again! When I purchased it, I of course loved it, but over time and as my style changed the love for this mirror  had almost diminished! But mirrors are something you just don't throw up!
So it sat in the garage collecting dust!

It doesn't look as bad here, but the spray paint job was horrible! I know that was my fault, but I just had lost the interest in this piece! It had no character!

I'm really in love with the current trend of using natural wood. 

 How gorgeous is this coffee table!!?

With that said, I got the idea of what I would do with the mirror!
The wood on some old canvas would be perfect! I had about 4, so I torn them apart!

I took the frame that was around the mirror and spray painted it white.

 I layed the wood pieces down to measure them.
After measuring I used the jigsaw to cut them.

I was OK with the pieces not matching up perfectly. I even thought about sanding the edges down, but I liked it more a little rough.

Once I could fit them around the mirror frame, I glued them with the glue gun into place


I never realized how hard taking pictures of a mirror were!

 I love it again!!

She is hanging in the guess room!
I now have a clear vision of  how I want the room to look! 

Don't forget to link up to tomorrow's Coffee and Conversation Thursday!!
