My daughter and her boyfriend are going to a family wedding in Alberta this month, and his mom asked me to make a gift for the bride and groom from the family.
First, a frame with a mirror...
Then I measured out the a portion of the mirror and removed the silvering
- a very stinky messy job involving a couple of chemicals that leave part of the mirror looking more like window.
This is what I look like when I am doing this part of the project...which leads to the question....
how is it that I am married?
I walk around all day with paint on my clothes,
sanding dust in my hair, wearing a mask and
constantly drag home junk.
According to my husband the house is starting to smell like the Salvation Army lol.
Ah he loves me -
I hope the new bride can be half as lucky as me!
I painted the frame with some Annie Sloan Antoinette and Old White and dressed it up a little with
some cute wooden appliques.
Then framed the invitation with a coordinating
Then placed the invitation in the windowed section of the mirror and ta da...
I really hope they like it...and this helps feather their new nest and make it feel more like a home!
