HOW ABOUT A MIRROR FOR YOUR LITTLE ONES ROOM

So I was asked by my Logan if I could put a mirror in his room that he could see into. At 5 he is to short to see his pretty little face in any of the other ones. So I grabbed this plain little mirror and made it a little more my house friendly.

I started by layering a bunch of different papers (vintage ones) with Mod Podge. Then covered the entire thing with pattern making papers for the perfect tan background.

Then as I do many days of the week, I hooped over to the Graphics Fairy and collected a bunch of Vintage Flash card images and got to work. I printed them in all different sizes. I cut them out, inked all of the edges and adhered them with more Mod Podge. I also went over the top of the images with the Mod Podge to seal it.

I finished it all off with some great Gaffer Tape from my site and there you are. A great little project that you can make your own in no time. Find you favorite graphics and have at it. Decorate a little spot in your house that you had not thought of adding anything to~!

What a great way for him to see his face... I'm working at hanging some mirrors in my little boy's nursery for the same reason. They love to see themselves! Thanks for sharing with Made it Monday! Jules
