Repurposed Vanity Mirror Chalkboard


Do you have a hard time throwing things away? I do, especially if it can have a new purpose. My line of work is creating from junk and making old things news, so when I found an antique vanity in the trash I just had to save it, even if it was in pieces. One of those pieces was the back of a side mirror. Come on over to the blog for the DIY details.
