It has been a while since my last post. It’s not from lack of thrifty projects to complete. It’s from the very fact summer has begun. That means a whole new routine, expectation, and craziness. I’m sure many of you can relate. I did however, find time to complete some DIY home decor projects, I just haven’t have had the opportunity to write about them. Now that I’m settled, I would like to share what I have been up to
I began with a mirror I found during a Good Will shopping spree. Even though I didn’t prefer the wood stain, I knew it had great bones. ( That’s Leo hanging out with me)
With a little bit of sanding and two coats of MMS Grain Sack, the mirror was showing potential. I decided then to dry brush it with MMS Linen for added interest and give it a quick distressing. I thought I was done, but it just didn’t look right to me. I have said this before, but the best thing to do when stumped… is to walk away.
I did just that and it worked. An idea popped into my head immediately when I looked at it again with fresh eyes. It needed some detail, something of interest… a stencil.
It worked! I am pleased with the end result. Just enough interest! I am so happy it was just that easy, now onto the next. Have you completed any new DIY projects? It is so rewarding to see the result of hard work!
