Well I thought yesterday seemed like a good day to break it out and try it. I googled it a bit to see if anyone else in blogland had used it and came across the Shanty Girls and they made it look easy. Whew, I can do this no problem.
Not so much.
This is my beloved purple bathroom. Love the color hate the mirror!
Got all my stuff together.
Measured and cut like the directions said.
Realized the top of my mirror has those ugly plastic clips so I had to cut out a spot for them. The trim cracked when I tried to do this. Ok, no sweat I just paint over it. Then when I cut the other side I cut it backwards. Yeah those 2 pieces in the pictures should not look the same. FAIL.
Then I started to get frustrated. This ugly mirror will not get the best of me! So I decided to take it down all together and put up a different one. I called in my hubs to help and when we took off the plastic clips we realized the mirror was GLUED TO THE WALL. I could have just taken them off and stuck on the trim!!!
Now I have this.
I'm going to move the mirror that's here in to the bathroom. (on a sad note this
is was my piano I decided to give it away to a good home because it takes up too much room.) I have to paint first, so I busted out the purple paint and I'm waiting for it to dry.
On to the next project! See I'm a optimist, one little set back won't get me down!
So I thought I would share a easy was to hang mirrors or pictures vertically.
You will need painters tape, a level, and of course your hooks and hammer.
Take your painters tape across the back of the mirror and put holes in the tape where the hangers are.
Place the tape on the wall where you want to hang your object.
Make sure it's level!
Hammer in your hooks.
Now all you should have to do is hang it! Well, this does work because I use it all the time, but yesterday was NOT my day. I pick up the heavy mirror and it's crooked! I can't figure out what I did wrong, I call my hubs over to check with the level and it's level, so what's the darn problem??
The hanging hooks on the mirror are not on evenly. FAIL.
So after this mess Madison decided to help "mommy" in the kitchen.
I gave her "Big Kisses" and felt much better. On to the next project!!
