Thrifted Mirror Make-Over with a Mustache

Hey guys!  I have a fun post up today that I originally guest posted at Chic On A ShoeString Decorating a few weeks ago.

Here's a little before and after thrift store find.  Check out this mirror I found for $2!

After covering the glass with paper and masking tape (that was seriously the hardest part)  I gave it few coats of spray paint.  Amazing what a little aqua paint can do!  It's now hanging in my living room :)

My brilliant husband thought it would be cool to draw a mustache on it too......I love how his brain works!  I drew one with some window crayons (yes, they are washable) and let me tell you, it took MANY tries with my camera to get it lined up just right on my face....but I always knew I'd look cool with a twirly mustache :)
