15 Minute Dollar Store Mirror Makeover


15 Minute Dollar Store Mirror Makeover

It’s officially 6 days until we move to the farm! I’ve been packing, packing, packing all week and there’s still so much to do, but when I saw this sad little dollar store mirror that I bought long, long ago, inspiration struck and I decided to give it a makeover! It was the perfect break from the stress of moving.

Even though pretty much everything is in boxes, I made sure that my crafts stuff is accessible. (You never know when inspiration might strike. Example: this mirror.)

I taped the mirror and then painted it with some pretty teal craft paint.

Then I hot glued some pretty flower accents onto the corner.

And I added a little “Smile!” in the bottom corner with a paint pen. 🙂

I plan on hanging it near Clare’s dress-up bin in her new room! She’s been so into dress up lately, but doesn’t have a mirror to check out her fabulous ensembles. I think she’ll love this.

In other news: Rob’s sister Shannon is throwing us a going away party at her house tomorrow. It’s going to be great to see all of our friends, but so sad to say goodbye. The friends we’ve made in Fort Collins have been like family to us. We’ll miss them!

I am the proud mama of a beautiful, hilarious little girl and the proud partner of a kind, smart man. The three of us have decided to make a major lifestyle change and move from Fort Collins, CO to an organic farm in southwest Colorado. We hope that by being surrounded by nature's beauty and working with our hands, we will be reminded daily that the simplest things in life are the most important. I learn big and small lessons every day, and I want to share what I've learned with other families.
