Anthro mirror on steriods

FINALLY blogger is up and running! My mornings are just off if I can't read blogs while I sip my coffee :)    Sooooo I stopped in a random thrift store and found the CUTEST frame with the UGLIEST picture in it.  This is the frame...

I forgot to take a pic before pulling out the ugly canvas, but it was something similar to this...

I took it to a glass and mirror place and for 40 bucks they cut out the canvas and put a mirror in for me!  So much cheaper than buying a mirror, the frame is freaking HUGE!  I love the other mirror I did for my bedroom so much I decided to do it again.  It's so easy to do and I already had paint stripper and muratic acid on hand, the fabric I got from Hobby Lobby.

The frame I painted with my super awesome paint sprayer, the color is Hummingbird Blue by Martha Stewart.  I glazed it with Ralph Lauren black glaze.

I really really love it!

I'm really loving the green and blue and glad I decided to not go with my normal pink :)

On a super happy note, I finished my 7th and final math class and I'm so freaking happy never to have to take another one!!! If I never see another matrix or integral again I will die happy.

Did I show you the beautiful headband my Mom made me for mother's day?

I wore it when I went and renewed my driver's license and was glad the lady let me keep it on,  I'll be staring at that flower for the next several years!

Totally random, but you need to record all the episodes of New Adventures of the Old Christine, this show is so hilarious!!

Seriously, like Will and Grace, laugh out loud funny!

The husband asked me if I was happy to be done with school for the summer and I'm actually dreading finding ways to entertain a 2 year old everyday.  Does that sound bad? Everything fun involves driving at least 30 minutes and spending 50 bucks a day by the time you get gas, eat lunch and do whatever it is your going to do.  Staying home all day sucks for me, which is why I'm a terrible 'stay at home mom'.  As I type this my child is stripping in the living room while watching Barney. Great. I can't keep clothes on this child.
We are planning to take a gymnastics class, she's already taught herself to do a forward roll, which is awesome.

Just a cute photo of her wanting to hold Daddy's hand while he mowed.

We are running a 10k tomorrow at Cooper Fitness Center in McKinney and the weather couldn't be more perfect!  Nothing beats a great run with the hubs and chowing down on Ihop after :)

Happy Friday!


  1. First of all, you are hysterical! Love your replay of your daughter watching Barney! LOL!!! Second, I LOVE the fabric you chose for the mirror! I just bought a bunch of that same fabric for a project I have on my to do list! Its so cute! The mirror turned out GORGEOUS! Have a great weekend!

  2. I know I about freaked out this morning without reading my blogs while drinking my coffee. I felt so lost :(

    I love how this turned out.So perfect! I am a big fan of aqua. I would like to use it in my master bedroom (if I ever get to decorating it).

    Yeah being a stay at home mom is exhausting! I am constantly chasing my two year old around the house! They are pretty stinking cute though.

    Enjoy your 10k! I love running :)

  3. The mirror looks fantastic! I love the fabric you picked.

  4. Ok.... I love yout mirror. I havent ever seen that be done before. I want to get a paint sprayer you have to let me know what kind you got and how you like it!

  5. The mirror looks fabulous !!!

    Rock out that 10K ! You go girl !

  6. First of all, you are super talented! That mirror (and all your other DIY projects) are so fab! I love love love Old Christine-I wish it was still on, but the re runs are just as funny! And that pic of your daughter is too cute :-)

  7. Love the colors of your mirror frame and the material! Vibrant and so rich!
    I hear you on the math class....never so glad to be done with something in my life, never to repeat again!
    Have fun with the kiddo this summer!

  8. Thank you so much for your lovely comment and for following me;)
    Lovely greetings...


  9. Okay, everytime you post one of those mirrors, I want to punch you in the head. Cause then I start thinking of all the places in my house that need a mirror. And my stupid husband is anti-mirror.

    I say you start selling those. People who have known you for over 15 years get a hella huge discount, mmmkay?

  10. Love the mirror! Some ideas for this summer: the park (of course when it gets to be 187 ourside that is so not fun), the pool (our community has a pool and i think a family pass is $35-$40 for the summer-well worth it), the library (our library has storytime and random stuff during the day), crafts (I'm sure there are a ton of blogs with kid safe crafts), zoo (again, the 187 degree weather rule applies).

  11. Love your mirror! Can't wait to click over to your other post to read how you did it :) The frame with the glaze looks great.

    Popping over from Homemaker on a Dime.

  12. Wow! That looks amazing Megan! LOVE the color you choose too! xox!

  13. Megan

  15. I love watching the old adventures of new Christine. the show is hysterical!


Make my day and leave me a love note!
