Mirror, Mirror


The compact little cottage vanities we installed in both bathrooms came with white MDF mirrors, which since we restored the 83 year old medicine chests,
were unneeded. At least in the bathrooms.
The spray paint color for the master bedroom is called True Blue. I used painter's tape and newspaper to cover the glass and gave the frames 3 light coats of paint for complete coverage.

Once that was dried and cured, I fired up the hot glue gun and grabbed some shells, sea glass, and
 flat-backed marbles.

The mirrors will hang side by side, which I kept in mind as I worked. I didn't want this to be heavy; I wanted a light accent. Starting with my heavier pieces, I glued them to the frame, then used tiny shells to fill in. I made sure it wasn't too symmetrical to keep the look casual.

And there you have it. They match the lamps nicely as well. And the next project too, in fact...

What a great Blue - What brand of spray paint it is?

Thanks, Eric! I'm glad you like it. It's Krylon True Blue Gloss, and Walmart carries it for $2.97 per can.
