Today was 1/2 price Friday at Goodwill here in cold Orillia. My wonderful niece, who now thinks I am the coolest at creating things since I made her this for Christmas
asked me to make her something for her makeup table so that all of her makeup isn't in her case. I had no idea what I was going to do until I saw a brown wood thingy and a god-awful navy blue organizer/divider -
all for the cheapola price of $6.99 with 50% off at the cash!!!! Then I went to the Dollarama and bought some $2 mirrors and $1.25 letters. But I was still not sure what I was going to do with any of it.
I had some really nice metallic spray paint in my craft room (which also doubles as the cat litter, furnace and freezer room). I painted both pieces and this is how they turned out
I am SOOOO impatient and waiting for them to dry was driving me crazy. I finally ended up doing some dishes in order to keep my mind off of it.
I gorillia glued the mirror to the box and taped it so that it wouldn't fall off. Next, I put some letters on the piece to give it that personal feeling. It was cute, but a little boring. I knew that once I glued the box to the main frame, it would have no "spark" or vavoom.
I had some material left over from my chair revamp and used just a little to give it some funk appeal.
Then I put the whole thing together
I am so excited to give it to her tomorrow. I hope she likes it. Abby Sue now wants one for her room.
