It’s been a long time since I have been thrifting, and I am really itching to go. I found this mirror way back in March while thrift store shopping with Marie and Allison. You can see it here in this post on 4 helpful tips for thrift store shopping. It has been in my basement ever since, just waiting for the right transformation.

I love the look of silver mirrors. With just one easy coat of silver spray paint I was able to hide the yellowing frame. Isn’t spray paint the greatest?!

With this big snowflake shaped cutting die from Lifestyle Crafts, I cut out a bunch of snowflakes using different silver and glittery papers.

Then with small glue dots, I adhered each snowflake on to the frame.



Isn’t it fun?! Now every time I walk by it this winter, I will be reminded to enjoy this season that often times I dread.
