Faux Garden Window
My daughter gave me this "window" mirror to sell at a garage sale. Sadly I came home with it and knew I had to give it a new life. So here we go.
Not very exciting. Oops! that's me in the mirror. The first order of business was to change the color (or lack thereof). So I turned the window face down and carefully removed the mirror to ready my project for paint.
bending up the clips, to remove the mirror.
Flat white with primer, was my choice of "color". When working with mirror, you have to be sure to paint even the backside and edges, as they will be reflected in the mirror when you put this back together.
It took two coats to cover. Be sure to allow each coat to dry before applying the next.
Next, I grabbed my black Sharpie/oil and using some inspiration from Pinterest I created a black line image of what I like to call dandelion puffs.
The final step: place the mirror back in the frame and hang it on my back gate.
I LOVE my little condo garden and look forward to seeing it reflected in this newest addition.
Happy crafting everyone!
