flower mirror redo part II...

so i was looking through my craft closet {yes i only get a closet} =(
for crafts/projects i can do without stepping foot outside when i came
across this mirror! i had completely forgotten about it!!
i first posted about it here.
it didn't turn out the way i'd hoped. the paint cracked and i wasn't sure.

so after i'd rediscovered it i thought i was going to mod podge it with some cute paper...
i couldn't decided which paper to use so i decided to polka dot it since it was going in caitie's room.

so i took a spray paint can lid and traced circles all over the mirror.

then i got to painting...

i wish i could paint as well as i traced the circles... then it would be perfect,
but that wouldn't be right.

here's the polka dots drying... not too badly messy. =)

then i decided to use poly on it.
first time ever. it sure made the black pop after it had dried!
i WILL use it again!

i haven't decided on a permanent place in caitie's room,
so i hung it up just so i could get a feel...

not even close to being perfect but caitie & i are A-okay with that!!

i hope everyone had a happy MONDAY!

i will be linking to these parties here.
