My "Fancy Mirror"...


A couple of bandaids and one broken mirror later...
I would  like to introduce
My version of the
"Trumeau"

I am so proud of this mirror because I made it all by my little self.
No help from Daddy.
No instructions.
No advice.
I first sketched it out in my mind.
I searched for scrap pieces that would work.
and learned
that mirrors break
Easily...
I think if you really put your mind to something
you will amaze yourself.
I hope a true carpenter does not come over anytime soon.
He may just bust my bubble
and point out
all of my boo boo's. 
But for now
I am going to just enjoy
my
"Fancy Mirror"
I hope you will enjoy it too!
Anyone out there interested
in a little
DIY?

  4. It turned out great! And I don't see a single boo-boo. Besides IF there were any it just adds to the character of the piece.

  55. I honestly like yours better than the 'real' Trumeau's. Not only do we want the DIY's, we want the details on the broken mirror! We won't even talk about the seven years of bad luck! (Who came up with that superstition anyway?)
    Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Yes Susie, please do a DIY!!!! You rock.

    By the way, are you finished reading Beth Moore's book? Can I just tell you that it has changed my life? I had a chance to meet up with fellow bloggers and I remembered that post you did on meeting bloggers and bringing insecurity along with you, and had I not read that book in it's entirety before going, I would have been writing the exact same post. I was so glad you shared what you did, because it played several times in my mind before I ever got to meet them and I knew God had way more for us! Just wanted to share that with you.

    Blessings,

    I love catching up with you, and those yard sales you visit are fabulous!
    I am not sure your mirror would look as good with my reflection in it hee hee!
    If anyone would like to pop over to me and check out my very new blog and make friends I would love it! A few friends from over the pond would be great!
    Love C. x
