After seeing this idea, I've been keeping my eyes open on Craigslist for old mirrors.
But when I came across this handsome fella for $5, I knew he'd work just as well.
Then just a little of this from my ribbon jar (I know it's not technically ribbon and therefore doesn't belong in there. Don't judge.)
Tie it onto the existing eye hooks.
Go out to the garage and pull a vintage 1968 nail out of the wall.
There ain't no fakin' this kind of patina.
Then do a little hanging, so instead of this...
You have this...
...and when you're husband comes by and says, "I don't get it," you can smack him. He's right , you know, he won't be getting it ;)
Of course when I uploaded the finished photo onto my computer, all I could pay attention to is those stupid brass light fixtures. Aargh!I know, I could change them out, but I had just had a talk with Camden about how $100 is a lot of money to spend on stuff that we don't really need. So....
Yes, a matte silver would've worked too, but my craft closet didn't have any...
Might as well do the "boob" light while I've got my paintbrush out. I think it's safe to say that I'll be leaving this poor bathroom alone (for awhile, at least...)
