“If bad decorating was a hanging offense, there'd be bodies hanging from every tree!” ~Sylvester Stallone

Over the weekend I was bored, so I decided I would do some decorating. Whit sent me some purple and yellow flowers (sorry, I don’t have a picture) so I decided that would be my new color scheme. So I picked the ugliest thing I own to make over. Which was this:

White mirror on a white wall? BORING.  And ugly. So ugly. So I pulled out the paints, mod podge, and some brushes and got to work to turn it into this:

A bit bright maybe . . . Although the first picture looks really bright because of the flash. I mod podged those little flowers all around (I don’t know if you can see it in the big picture.

Then . . . since I still had some paint and some purple fabric, I decided to make this:

To match the mirror! I forgot to take a “before” picture, but it’s just a cheap little wall clock. It was ugly too. You can’t tell, but the fabric inside the clock is actually a darker purple than it looks. I have just enough purple fabric left to make a little pillow for my bed to tie everything together.

And luckily, if I decide that the yellow is too bright for me (I’m still getting used to it) I can always just leave it in my parent’s guest room! haha.
