1. Ugly thrift store mirror. $4.95
2. Halfway through makeover! Classing it up with some Shakespeare clippings.
3. Add some adhesive chalkboard (who knew?) and some scrapbook paper embellishments, and we now have a place near the door to jot down where we're going and when just in case of mishap.
(Remember, if something happens while you're "running errands," and no one knows exactly what that entails, the police may have nowhere to start the investigation. Seriously, leave a note. It takes two seconds.)
I really wanted to try the chalkboard paint, but it doesn't adhere to glass. We'll just have to save that for another day.
