It was in poor shape. The mirror was loose and the hanger was gone.
I found some larger washers and replaced a few to really tighten things up…..Then I heard a CRACK………..
Do they make MIRROR spray paint ??? Good thing I am NOT SUPERSTIOUS ! I know that mirror is expensive , so what is a girl to do …..I got like a couple of hours….I HAVE TO FINISH SOMETHING – that is just a ME thing….
I then started on another project…that one bombed too….so back to the broken mirror……hmmmmmmm
CHALKBOARD PAINT !!!! I painted the frame with ORB and the hardest part ? I have to wait 24 hours before I can write a message in chalk !
It turned out o.k. – I really want a mirror over my desk…….LOL !
This is a quickie tutorial that can be done in about 10 minutes. Use a sewing machine with a straight stitch.
Start with a dollar dish towel from Walmart
Cut a piece of fabric 1 1/2 the width of the towel. Sewing the raw edges first , double over the fabric and pin the ends and the middle. Gather the same amount of pleats on either side of the middle and pin. Sew.
Next , get some accent ribbon – again mine is from Walmart. Pin to top of pleats. Sew one row on top of ribbon and another on the bottom of ribbon.
Cute hand towel for the kitchen. I can never find the combination I want , now I am going to make what I want…so easy and thrifty. There are countless ways to embellish this towel. Also , I hate using and buying paper towels – This will be cute hanging out in my kitchen.
