Altered Mirror

So it was 3rd time lucky! A few weeks ago we took this old ugly cabinet down from out of the bathroom, and it just sat in the shed. So while getting stuff out of the freezer for dinner the other week I saw it again and thought to myself, “oh I know what I can do with that!” So forgotten was dinner and I went to work with the screwdriver. I took the front of and quickly took it out to my shed to start working on it later that night. Only to be met with great disappointment, It wasn't working and looking how I wanted it to, so it got pushed aside for another day. Then about a week after that the same thing I got it out again ready to make it look beautiful and again disappointment, I was starting to think it was a lost cause and would never work, but 3rd time lucky it worked!!!

I had originally cut the carriage and title for a scrap booking page, but wasn't liking it so thought well why not use it on the mirror and, well there you go!!

And sorry about the pics too, while making this I didn't really anticipate how hard it would be to photograph..lol








Edit to add, I used the silhouette to cut the title and carriage.
