loads of stuff...

OK first things first....Cynthia sent me an amazing shelf transformation that you just have to see! I'm so happy that she sent me the link!!! She covered a shelf with fabric and it turned out beautifully!! Click HERE to check it out!! Thanks for the idea! It makes me want to find a shelf to cover with fabric!
Secondly I have to thank my hot hubby for making me this vinyl sticker!He read my post about not being able to sleep while he was away and while I was sleeping in he found a sticker image that I thought was cute from IKEA and he traced the image onto the computer and printed it out for me!! What a sweetheart!!

Thirdly I have to give a shout-out to Carrie. I came home from a meeting yesterday to find this
on the counter:
She is amazing!! Check out her BLOG. Her cake creations are to die for!!

And fourthly(is that even a word??) we'll get to the project of the day!! After I dropped off a shelf order to Angela(thanks again Angela) I stopped by the DI in Provo. I wasn't really too excited by anything there, but I thought I'd buy this mirror for $15 and paint it.
Once I got it into the house it was broken which was actually a blessing in disguise because it made me have to get a little inventive and create a new bottom with mdf, trim and pegs.
I put an extra piece of mdf on the top to make it more substantial and painted it green.
My paint was nearly gone because I really love love love this color of green and it is everywhere in my house. It's called Tate Olive I believe and I think I got it at Home Depot.
Anyhoo, after painting(with a broken sponge brush, so it was very messy) I added some paper to the sides.
I just taped it so I can replace it with fabric or a different print if I want to! It actually turned out better than I expected so its a happy Monday for me!! I hope you all have a happy Monday too!! Oh.. and PS...there is an identical mirror for sale at Saver's in Orem if you'd like to have one of these in your house!
