Mirror Transformation


Here is the transformation of the mirror I bought a few weeks ago for $4.99. I really didn't have to do much except cleaning the dust thoroughly , spraying the primer and 2 coats of paint.




I've had this table for a long time and when we had a neighborhood garage sale in June, I was almost able to get rid of it. But now I'm glad it wasn't sold.



I decorated the table with my own appliques that I made and painted it. I saved a lot of money by making my own appliques. Those appliques would have costed me a fortune if I didn't make them myself.


These photos came out blurry, but it looks absolutely gorgeous if you see it!! ^^
