Ya'll know I've been raving about the #getsmart @tiltsmarthome blinds. πŸ‘I'm obsessed!
-
-
-
I have to mention another thing I have come to love about these is that I can adjust the blinds from my app according to the kids particular needs. #sponsored -
-
-
For example, our daughter likes to hang out in here and do her nails, read, chat on the phone with her bff.  All the teen girl things. πŸ’…
-
-
-
And if it's scheduled for them to be closed (based on the hot afternoon sun holla temp sensitive blinds)  I can adjust them to open downward enough to give her light while still keeping most of the heat out. -

Teen happy, mom happy, wallet happy πŸ’° #tilt

You’re a Work of Art…Frame It! **15 Min DIY for that Ugly Bathroom Mirror**

diy for bathroom mirror, diy fix for bathroom mirror, home decor, interior design, cheap fix for bathroom mirror

I have one of those gigantic, sore thumb, pain in the arse, ugly as all get out mirrors in our master bathroom.Β  I have hated it since we moved in 6 1/2 years ago.Β  I begged the hubs to help me take it down (It’s 10 1/2 ft long!) but he said no way babes.Β  He was really worried about it breaking given it’s size and was also worried about damage behind the wall. While I was ready and willing to deal with such potential circumstances….SOMEBODY wouldn’t budge. (imagine me bouncing back and forth from the evil eye to batting eyelashes, ugh no go folks)

Thus began the journey of trying to convince said significant other by showing him beautiful mirrors we could replace it with, nadda. Harumph.Β  Then it evolved into kicking around the idea of trimming it out.Β  That’s looks super nice and is fairly straightforward of a project, although a bit time consuming AND he was worried about breakage again via nailing up the trim. Doing my darndest he was still not on board. Galdarnitall.Β  So I have been stuck with this ugly thing for all this time, but I was determined and had to get creative.Β  The other day I had a genius idea (cause I think I’m a genius sometimes hehe)

I LOVE vintage frames, the older the better.Β  So I decided to go on the hunt for 2 such frames and use them to “decorate” the mirror.

My backup plan was to buy 2 new frames and distress them, although I much preferred to find antiques as I love the look aannnddd I’m lazy.Β  Wouldn’t you know it, lady luck was on my side!Β  At my local flea I found 2 beautiful frames both old, wooden, detailed and the perfect size.

(You can do this project using new frames too!Β  The sky is the limit with the finishing you can do on them from spray painting to sanding for a distressed look so this is a great option)

Now that I’ve got the frames, time to spend about 15 minutes putting them in place!

Materials for this project:

2 large vintage frames – $48

8 pound fishing line – already had so FREE

4 small i hooks – already had these too FREE

Tape measure

First up I decided I wanted to hang them horizontally. This was based on the height of the mirror and the fact that it is so long hanging them sideways would visually take up more of the mirror and look more balanced.

Then we screwed in little baby i hooks 2 on each frame at the top on the back of the frames to hide them.

Once those were in place we tied the fishing line on one of the i hooks and then ran the line over the light fixture (these frames only weigh a couple of pounds) and adjusted for placement over the mirror.

Next up we decided on the distance from top to bottom of the mirror and tied the line on the other i hook.Β  Evened out the frame so it was straight and voila!Β  Floating frame!

Our oldest standing in for me so I could snap a pic for ya, clearly he’s a teenager. (see the ‘tude? hahaha)

Repeat the steps on the other side. Easy as pie!

This literally took us only about 15 minutes to do and it makes a HUGE difference!Β  The room looks bigger, it highlights the ceiling height and I feel a lil glamorous lookin at my bad self in the mirror framed with a beautiful vintage frame.

You’re a work of art so why not put a frame around it?!

The total cost for this project was the $48 spent on both frames, we already had the rest of the materials on hand.Β  I am stoked with the compromise I came up with and now love the mirror.

Give this one a go if you have a ridiculously painfully ugly mirror at home!Β  You can do a colorful frame, hang it at an angle, round frame, vintage frame, etc. etc.Β  So much room for personality and fun!

What do you think?Β  Would you hang a “floating” frame over your mirror to dress it up?Β  Always love to hear from ya!

    Thank you so much for sharing this!! For 10 years I’ve been trying to think of a way to upgrade my large plain condo mirror. This will be perfect. I’ve just found your blog through One Room Challenge. 😺
