Monogram Mirror - - do you just love it? I do!
Side note - - let me tell, it's hard to take a picture of a mirror and show how fabulous it is. Just know, it's fabulous in person!!
I have to admit, the monogram was my husband's idea - isn't he a genius?!? I really love it (but maybe I have a thing for monogram wall art,see HERE).
I originally thought I was going to put this on the mantel in my family room, but I just wasn't loving it there. So I hoisted to the big void of empty wall in my vaulted-ceiling kitchen, and it's perfect up there - adds light and shine up high.
Let me show you how I made this.
--liquid nail (or hot glue? - I think it would work)
--grout (and application tools - sponge, spreader-thing, bucket)
--gloves - a must!
First grab a mirror (or two) and remove the frame. I found these when I was cleaning out my storage room - score!
Next draw your monogram in the middle of your board. Can you see it in the picture below? Then fill it in with smaller shards. I glued down my mirror pieces with Liquid Nail, but I'm thinking a glue gun would work too. Then after you fill in the letter, leave a generous space around it so it will stand out.
I love it in my kitchen. I only stenciled 2 walls (see that HERE) so that other wall needs something. I want 3 big vases, but I'm cheap so I haven't gotten them yet. This mirror is perfect.
Did I mention I made this for free?? Since all the stuff was just found around my house - love that!
Can't wait to see if any of you out there make one for yourself - let me know!
here's to hoping for a win....
