I am relieved and stressed that it is the weekend. We are having Ava's birthday party this weekend and I want everything to be perfect. No matter how prepared I get I always feel like I am forgetting something. Not a good feeling. Anywho, I wanted to show you guys this super easy DIY that I recently did. I have seen tons of pretty mirrored and brass plates that people have been using for perfume and other knick knacks. I really really like them but have only been able to find some that cost a pretty penny!! And that is just not going to happen. So here is my alternative....
- Old Frame
- Paint (Whatever color you would like the bottom to be, I chose silver)
- Paintbrush &Newspaper to put under project
Step One: Clean the frame (including the glass. I bought my frames from a thrift store so this step is especially important)
Step Two: Take the glass out of the frame and paint it. If it is not completely opaque do a second coat when completely dry.
Step Three: Place the glass back in the frame. I then placed a thick piece of cardboard in the back as well to make sure that it was very secure in the frame and would not slide around. However, this step is optional.
