For some reason the files for the before and after picture aren't loading...LAME! But you'll still get the gist.
Here is a sweet plastic $2 mirror I got at the thrift store, but you can't tell it's plastic until you touch it.
I wasn't so fond of the gold. The backing wouldn't come apart, so I had to just cover the mirror.
I taped to pieces of scrap paper together so it covered the whole mirror with a little overlap. I laid it inside the frame and made a crease at the edge of the frame.
I cut it out, maybe 1/4" or less, past the crease.
Then I slid the paper under the frame and made sure every part of the mirror was covered.
Then I painted it in Krylon Watermelon.
And I pretty much love it!
This is perfect for my little girl's room and it'll be perfect for the shower I'm hosting!
Lots o' love,
