Updated Mirror and Wall Art



So my parents gave me their old mirror from their living room.
I LOVED it!

But at some point during my move one of the mirror pieces broke and the rest were falling off.



So I decided to give it an overhaul!


I pulled off the surrounding pieces of mirror.
Then I painted it the aqua-ish color of my kitchen (and accent color in my living room).
(I have an open kitchen/living room floor plan)


I attached the central mirror back and hung it up using heavy duty screws.


It was still missing something though...

So I grabbed a few spare canvases I had and got to work.
First I painted them the Antique White all my kitchen cabinets are painted.
Then I used the same aqua, the brown from my living room, and the gray from my bedroom to make random circles on the canvases.



I used a plastic cup for the big circles.
I used the ends of empty toilet paper rolls for the medium ones.
And the small ones are from the cap of a hairspray bottle.


I LOVED how the canvases turned out!
They're not perfect but that's what I find so unique about them :)


And now my wall is complete!
My living room looks SO much more homey now.


I'm loving how my house is piecing together and I can't wait until it's all finished so I can give you guys a tour :)

LOVE this. I love what you used on the canvas. What a great, thrifty idea. The colors work so well together. I am a new follower from Young and Crafty. Vicky from Mess For Less
