Mirror REDO!!

I have had a few questions about the Chicken wire mirror......I hope this answers them!

I have come to find behind every piece that is refinished there seems to be a story...My Mirror Story...

This mirror was the first piece of furniture my husband and I bought together {ahh so sweet} I always wanted a free standing mirror and felt like a million bucks to bring this home!  As I have mentioned before we have moved 5 times in our 7 years of marriage and so things get broken.  Such was the story of this mirror.  on our 4th move the movers accidentally broke the glass and I realized it too late to get it fix, so it too found a home in the basement.  

When I started redoing my daughters room I decided to paint it.  The original plan was to put glass back in it.  However to get the glass cut was more than buying another used one.   I have tons of chicken wire so I decided to put that in instead.  I love how it turned out and she LOVES it too...she can now change her own hair bows everyday {I don't know if that is a good thing} 

I just spray painted the frame and sanded it a little to add some character!  The chicken wire is just stapled to the back!  SO EASY!!!
