October 7, 2009


Happy White Wednesday my blogging friends.  Today I am showing you a very simple transformation (sorry no before pictures).  All that is needed is one of my favorite things (a can of white spray paint!).
These vintage mirrors can often be found at your local thrift store and are usually brass in colour.  I easily took apart the mirror and gave the frame a few coats of spray paint.  Then re-assembled, glued on a jewel and added a rub-on.

Visit Kathleen's blog for a list of all the WW participants.  Happy day my blogging friends.

Let your life lightly dance on the edges of time like dew on the tip of a leaf.

Amazing what a can of spray paint can do and an imagination. Love your pumpkins from the last post also. The lacey look of the doilie is just so cute, How did you do the lettering? is it a rub on? I'm sorry if I missed you telling us. It's just so darn cute!

Don't you love that spray paint? You did a great job...I am just now starting to look at things through the eyes of a can of spray paint...there's just no end to what can be transformed! I love the reflection in that little mirror, too!

OK ~ so when I get ready to run away from home, I want to come to the spot that is reflected in your mirror. Don't go to any trouble cause I'll just sleep among the amazing flowers or even in the chair. Just throw a blanket over me! You know I love what you do my friend!!!
