I wanted to take a moment to show you the world's longest mirror project. By world's longest, I mean, the most annoying and tedious project ever.
Shall we continue?
I had a vision of a set of sparkling, yet subtle mirrors to replace the seashell picture in our dining room:
Pardon the image, it's the only one I could scavenge up on this computer and the main focus was the light fixture, but you get the idea of the seashell pic.
Anywho, back to my vision. What I intended was to make a super trendy and sparkly, yet classic and subtle group of mirrors as the focus on our back wall in the dining room.
I started with eight of these $3 pine mirrors from Ikea:
Not terrible on its own, but I had a plan. I would add those glass bead things that fill vases. Sorry for no pics....
Over the course of two weeks, 10ish hours, 1 bottle of white spray paint, about 60 glue sticks later, and a crippled had from gluing each.individual.bead, here's what I ended up with (click on the pics for better detail):
I have to be honest with ya- I'm feeling "eh" about them, but they'll do. This is the first project that I've completed that I'm not head over heals in love with. I think even this post lacks the usual enthusiasm I have when I complete a project. But, it's better than the seashell pic, right?
You better say yes or I'll have to whip my glue gun out on ya :)
