Thrift Shop Mirror Makeover, Guest Post

Hello Chic on a Shoestring Readers!  I'm excited to have a chance to be guest posting here today!

So let me introduce myself.....

I'm Elise and I'm constantly working on artsy/crafty projects that I share over at my blog Grow Creative.  I'm a wife and mommy to a four-year-old.  I love art, crochet, finding cute ways to decorate my home cheaply, swimming, and kids! 

 I'm also a firm believer in the power of using our creative abilities to help us see the good in life and grow.  I believe everyone has a creative spark in them somewhere!

So this is what I have to share today....
 a little before and after thrift store find.  Check out this mirror I found for $2!

After covering the glass with paper and masking tape (that was seriously the hardest part)  I gave it few coats of spray paint.  Amazing what a little aqua paint can do!  It's now hanging in my living room :)

My brilliant husband thought it would be cool to draw a mustache on it too......I love how his brain works!  I drew one with some window crayons (yes, they are washable) and let me tell you, it took MANY tries with my camera to get it lined up just right on my face....but I always knew I'd look cool with a twirly mustache :)
