Craft, art, DIY supplies are like the old Lays potato chips ad...you can't have just one...of anything. And when you go places like Ikea or The Dollar Tree and you see basic things you know you can make things from, you buy them in multiples because you know if you don't, you'll make one of something and you'll be so happy with it that you'll want to make another and you don't want to have to drive to the inconvenient Ikea to get stuff. Right? OK well that's my story and I'm sticking to it and I had some stuff in my stash that I decided to play with.
Ikea regularly stocks these 10x10 plain wood mirrors. They're $2.99. I covered the wood with some carpet tape I'd bought in a ridiculously large roll. It's called Polyken 108 and you don't need it for this project. I just have been trying to use this ridiculously large roll that I had to have when I was at a stamp show. TWO ( or maybe even three) years ago. Anway....you could use any strong double sided tape or Mod Podge your paper onto the frame, but here's my taped up frame:
So now let's go to the Dollar Tree where I'd picked up this frame for a $1, you know, being the Dollar Tree:
I painted it black and then glued it to the mirror. I then went over it with silver Rub-n-Buff and here's the end result:
