Sometimes I get crazy ideas, let’s be honest. My husband is a good sport, and he goes along with my “vision” most of the time!
I decided I wanted an ultra-unique mirror. The idea has been processing in my brain for several months. Then, I got contacted by a super duper nice producer from Good Things Utah. It was a perfect time to materialize my idea because of course I wanted something fun to take to the show!
Step 1: I made a design on Photoshop…
…and used an overhead projector to transfer the image onto a piece of MDF.
Next, the hubsters cut it out for me with his jigsaw. (Note this picture is from another project…since I didn’t capture the actual event this time.)
I purposely chose 1/2 inch MDF to add dimension to the project.
I primed the bad boy with KILZ.
I was careful to make sure that every edge was covered with primer. I used a brush to get into all the nooks and crannies of the design.
Then, I painted the mirror turquoise to match my home decor.
I used Krylon Blue Ocean Breeze.
Next, I glazed the edges of the project using my dry brush technique I demonstrated in my glazing instructional video.
Then, my cute hubby ordered me a piece of glass from the nice folks at Jones Paint and Glass.
AND Voila….my unique turquoise mirror was complete!
Now to decide where to hang this bad boy!!! The pictures don’t do this justice! I hate it when that happens!
Tutorials for the other projects shown on the Good Things Utah segment will be appearing soon. Stay tuned.
