KEEPING MC OCCUPIED!

No way was I going to go into August without SOMETHING!!!!

We have a dark area at the end of our main hallway.  Natural light doesn't quite get there.  I have always had to turn the overhead light on to see any art piece we hung there.

I came up with a small "Epiphany"!
  I "thought" why not put a mirror at the end of the hall?  Mirrors reflect light!

Perfect ....except....a large mirror is not in the Budget!!!

What do we do?
You guessed it!
Make one, with 12" MIRROR TILES!
What else?





  Three boxes!   It didn't take an hour!  
He did do it barefoot!  Luckily for him no breakage or cuts!!!!


MC bought enough molding to make his frame and we picked up two packages of rosettes.

The next day MC constructed and painted his frame a bronze gold . Then... added the rosettes!
It measures 3' x 5' plus the frame! 





PERFECT..
PROJECT UNDER $50!!!
DONE! 

Now what?

    1. I have tried them all. So far my favorite is a mixture of 1/4 alcohol to 1 cup of water.
