I Couldn't Leave Well Enough Alone ...

Ever since seeing the post by Kim over at Saavy Southern Style where she added a burlap backing to her bookcase in her sitting room, I have been wanting do the same thing to one of my bookcases. You can read about Kim's project here.



After refinishing my closet mirror, I still felt like it wasn't being showcased very well against the painted wall. It just looked like it was missing something.




So, I cut some cardboard to fit the space and covered it with some burlap that I had.


Ha! I didn't even burn myself using the hot glue gun!


And here's how it looks now ... 





Here's the metamorphosis of the space ....
here's the before


















Mirror - painted and glazed





And, finally ...

Now I think I'm finished!!!

WOW, I can't believe your daughter started college...you are right though she is going to do great...you and your hubs do a great job with your daughters...teaching them all the rights and wrongs, and wrongs again!

  4. I love it, love it, love it!
    I have an old gold mirror like that, which I am tired of its looks! Now that I am sure this new color looks so good, it will be my next project around here. Thanks so much!

  7. Great idea...looks terrific.
    I bet you could even use little pins to stick into the burlap to hang more necklaces too?!

  10. The shelf looks complete with the background finished. And your mirror really turned out nicely! A lot more interesting than gold. I'm in the midst of a mirror painting project myself. I also have two of the little vanity tray mirrors like yours to spray paint ORB. Gold- be gone! LOL
