Mirror, Mirror; Where'd Ya Go?

Hey kids!  Guess what time it is?  No, not Howdy-Doody's DIY time!

Last night I "inherited" this gem from my sweet sister-in-law to be, Laura:
It was originally a pretty, silver-framed mirror.  The mirror broke and Laura decided there was no use for the flimsy frame anymore.  Silly, silly Laura.  She has a lot to learn about repurposing and upcycling!

I knew immediately what I was going to do, and it all began with a can of oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.  Let's face it, ORB may just make the world go 'round...

Walmart sells a 4-pack of cork squares and they are easy to cut with a pair of scissors.  Shame on me for not taking extensive shots of the whole process, but it was such a breeze that I was done before I'd really gotten started! 
Ta-da!!!  I made a new corkboard for all of Bubba's artwork.  It hangs proudly in our playroom!  I'm super excited, but I really would love to see him go back to school, for reasons none the least of which include my wanting some new art to display.

  1. Soooo cute! Love what you did with it!! I'm going to be on the look out for a pretty frame too. There are always appts and to-do items that get forgotten. This is so pretty we would WANT to look at it!
