{Vintage} Goodwill mirror....{Newbie party started}

You just never know what you can score at the goodwill! 
This mirror was a great find for me.  My first makeover was fun and I have had it in several places.  Since doing our bedroom dresser vignette over with new warmer displays, I decided Mr. Mirror, mirror needed a new makeover.!

This was the first Makeover and you may view details

Harvest Romance, and another Lamp redo! modern bedroom

Here it hung for a while last Fall/Winter...
Our bedroom has had a complete makeover since then too. I will show you some updates soon.

And today here is the new makeover...

It now is a romantic chalk board. I have the world's worst handwriting, so I actually used stencils and shaded the numbers and letters on.

A romantic vignette...
{Dried} roses Mike has given me.

I also toned down the color with a  bit of ASCP Duck egg blue I had left over some time ago.

Another easy, inexpensive way to spruce up and old mirror.

Hi Debbie,
What a great idea using stencils for the writing. I also have terrible handwriting. Fail that class!

As a mirror .. That would have fit in in my daughters room perfectly, but I have to say it is adorable as a chalkboard!!!

Debbie, what a great idea to turn your mirror into a chalkboard!! It looks great...and what a lovely vignette you've created! Very pretty!

That is the sweetest thing! I love it as a chalkboard! Did you do the chalkboard paint right over the mirror?

Blogger Kelly said...

Great idea! That idea would be great on a large mirror also so you could transform it into a message center in the kitchen.

Yes, I chalkboarded over the mirror...I bought the paint at Walmart.

Debbie - it looks great but is it my imagination or is it more round now and it looked oval on the wall. Did you cut it down too? You amaze me!!

Great job Debbie, I love the stenciled, shaded on letters and hearts. : ).. My handwriting is ok, but it never turns out well on craft items either. Great solution!

What a nice love note for you and your hubby to see each day. I like a chalk frame like this where the quote can be changed frequently and I'm probably one of the few bloggers who doesn't have one!

I have a frame with my wedding invitation inside that I JUST CAN'T let go of. I have remade it 5 times. It's a part of me now.
I love your make over and why get rid of something that obviously is so dear and can be redone? You still amaze me with how much you do, I would be laying in a puddle exhausted!

Looks great!! Loving the make over!!

I like the stencil idea too. i have awful handwriting too. I think it was from all those years of having to write in patient's charts. Now we are computerized and I do not have to do all that writing!!
