Sharon from Lilikoi Joy had the idea to place long mirrors above her nightstands to mimic the look of windows. Unfortunately, the mirrors looked more like the cheap plastic door mirrors they were than the pretty windows Sharon had envisioned.

Antiqued Christmas Mirror Makeover

Suzanne of Bitz of Me gave a framed mirror that was too brown for her liking a makeover this holiday season. She first lightened up the frame with some white chalk paint and dark wax and then added a Christmas saying to the glass. The fact that the text is removable makes it perfect for seasonal decorating and special occasions, but I love the idea of adding a beloved saying or Bible verse to a mirror or old window to enjoy the whole year through.

Antiqued Christmas Mirror with Text

With Halloween officially behind us, it’s time to bring on the Christmas projects. I mean if Big Lots and Kmart can show Christmas commercials, we can definitely get our Christmas craft on, right? Speaking of Christmas projects, my dear friend Jen from Tatertots & Jello has already created a couple of amazing ones! I am just loving this mirror she made for the holidays by distressing it and then adding some vinyl. I’d take it hands-down over her Pottery Barn inspiration, and it was less than one-third the cost.

She covered the edges with veneer and the front with chevron fabric, and voila – a gorgeous and graphic mirror!
