Refurbed Mirror

Recently I found a mirror at Christmas Tree shops that seemed like an interesting buy.  (It was purchased before my Stashbusting began!)  I brought it home and put it away. 
My neighbor recently had a baby and was looking for some things to decorate her nursery with.   The theme was blue and brown with polka dots and the only decoration that she had were letters that spell L-I-A-M
When I saw the letters I thought of the mirror that I had.  I told her that I would repaint it for her to match Liam's room.  Here is the mirror that I started with:

I was pretty sure that she did not want a pink mirror with a seashell!  So I took off the shell, primed the mirror and repainted it brown.  Then I painted circles of different sizes blue.   Finally I got the letters to spell Liam.  I painted them brown on the sides and blue on top to match the letters on the wall.  Lastly I glued everything on and this is what it looks like!

They loved it!  Hope you do too!
I linked this project to the before and after at The Girl Creative Chick Parade @
