Playroom Mirror

I did a post here a while ago about the mirror I spruced up for the playroom. I wanted to share a couple new pictures to show how we are using it. We used little bird handles from Anthropologie to anchor the mirror because of the weight, this old mirror is heavy! They were also intended to be used as hangers for the little ones dress up clothes and jewelry.


Here is the mirror before I gave it two coats of white paint.


We don't have a lot of wall space for separate hooks so this has been a perfect solution for us.
I'm thinking about making a smaller one for my jewelry!

I am participating in the CSI Project again this week. The challenge this week is for frames, art and wall decor. If you haven't been over to this new site, check it out. They have a specific theme for each week and you compete to be the judge’s top pick. It's a lot of fun!

  9. Londen, those little birds are just darling, perfect to hold a little princess's clothes. Instantly I thought of Cinderella and Snow White! I really need to put a mirror in the playroom so that the girls can look at themselves all dressed up.

    Best wishes,
    Tammy
