Ikea Mirrors Go Coastal!

I think Ikea’s little mirrors with the wide wooden frames are a great invention.  I used one earlier when I made a Beach Rock Mosaic Mirror.

I had a few more lying around the house that I had purchased months ago at a thrift store.  I needed a few more things to fill up some dead space on the Gallery Wall, so I thought they’d be a perfect fit.

One of them got some beachy blue stripes.

Painter’s tape made painting the stripes easy.  {If you try this, be sure to remove the tape before the paint dries.}

The other one got a few polka dots with the help of the end of a fat brush.  I just dipped it in the paint and gently touched it down onto the dried top.

They add a touch of fun and help shine a little light, too!

Here are some of the other Gallery Wall sign details, if you missed them:

  1. Oh I sold my old ikea mirrors like these in my garage sale last year… darn! You did such a fabulous job at changing yours up – I love how they look now! The more and more I see the more I think I need to get that book of Ashley’s!
