Bathroom Mirror

My bathroom is ok, nothing special.

There are 2 projects I want to get done in there:
Frame the bathroom mirror
Put up shelves

I am not sure how I want to do the mirror though. I have seen a few options online:

Using moulding to create 3 seperate mirrors~

Using frames to create a "mirror on mirror" look~

Pinned Image

Framing out the mirror~

Pinned Image

the mirror on mirror looks pretty easy and would require no cutting, caulking etc. That might be the one...... :)

Valentine's Day Treats

I saw a great post on Pinterest and thought it would be perfect to make for the girls school Valentine's Day Party.

First I gathered my 3 ingredients:

M&M's, White Popcorn  and Chocolate Chips

I popped the popcorn, drizzled melted chocolate ontop and mixed it all up with my hands.

Then filled our bags and scooped in some M&M's

Tie with a cute tag (made out of paint chips - Thanks Lowe's!!)

Bedroom Wall Art

Another project for Mia's room!

I wanted to add art for the wall behind her bed and I had 2 requirements:
1. It had to be large
2. It had to be cheap

So....... We bought some letters at the craft store and some scrapbook paper in shades of blue.

I spray painted all the letters white.

Next, I framed the paper in unused frames I had in the garage.

Lastly, I hot glued the letters to the outside of the frames (directly onto the glass).

Headband Organization

I am still working on small projects in Mia's room redo.

I have seen tons of headband organizers using Quaker Oats containers and I just happened to have one in my pantry.

I emptied the oats into a glass jar and got started.

I covered it with pretty paper and that was it!

The headbands look cute and now have a place to go.
