Idea #1… My Girly Barn Mirror

Hi friends!

(Warning… no your eyes are not playing tricks on you…

some of the pics are slightly blurry from the laptop cam)

Anywho…

My husband surprised me a couple of weekends ago when

he asked me if I wanted to go to the thrift store…

UM… together!!!

What???

Are you kidding me?

Oh ladies… I’ve been praying for him and I think God is working!

LOL!

So get this… we went thrifting the whole day!

I love it!

It wasn’t there my first walk through but when I came through again…

there it laid… begging me to take it!

I did.  It was meant to be!

But, I think it needs a little ruffle in it’s step… don’t cha think?

This is one of the ideas I had for my cute little skirt…

Just glue or tack on a pleated skirt and…

I think this is a cute way to dress up any mirror… don’t you?

  8. I'm new to yr blog -- found you while reading FJI!

    The skirt on the mirror is very unique ~ I like it! Frayed edges are 'in' right now, so yr right on target :)

    Loved the skirt video - I know you said "don't laugh" when you showed us the backside but, I laughed.
    I'm sorry!
    I wasn't laughing at yr sewing. Really.
    Really! :-)

    Looking forward to revisiting!

  13. I LOVE the combo of the weathered wood and the simple basic pleats and jute twine. Very nice and clean. What a fresh style!
