Hi there ladies!
If you visit on a regular basis, you know how much I adore both chalkboards and mirrors! I just can't seem to get enough of them! Well, when I discovered a vintage Syroco mirror last week at the antique mall, I was inspired to turn it into both!"darn it all! I was supposed to take a before shot!" Bet you've done the same thing, too, haven't you?!
Well, the frame began life as a very boring brown, which made her look quite, shall I say "plasticy"? I don't know if "plasticy" is a word or not, but you get my point!! Anyway, I drifted away a bit from my usual creamy dreamy white, and opted this time around for nice bright pure white. Love! Now instead of looking like plastic, she looks like finely carved wood!
Ok, I was getting a bit ahead of myself there. I decided to use chalkboard vinyl on the backside of the mirror. So, when you want a different look, just remove the backing, flip it around, and viola! A mirror/chalkboard combo!!
I am super happy with the way she turned out, and can't wait to create more (which I promise to do my best to take before photos of!!!). I've put her in my Etsy shop, if you want to take a peek!
11 years ago today on a beach in Hawaii, hubby and I exchanged vows.

And even a sailboat in the background.

I'm linking up today's post with Kathleen over at Faded Charm. Be sure to check out White Wednesday for some terrific ideas! Have a great day!!
