How to turn your Pound Shop Mirror into a Shabby Chic Master Piece.

How to turn your Pound Shop Mirror into a Shabby Chic Master Piece.

 If you’re anything like me you’ll love the shabby chic look. Above that I love my bargain finds. With my love for all things Shabby Chic I have to find ways to get the look I want for a fraction of the price, as my bank balance does not agree with the prices of some items you see out there. Today’s tutorial is on how to achieve the shabby chic look but at a much cheaper price. In my case , I happened to have all the materials I needed from a previous project. I didn’t spend a penny! Happy all round. One of my favorite things is shabby chic photo frames, TK Max shabby chic photo frames to be exact haha. I love them. If I had my way every visit will result in me buying one. But the hubby had to put a stop to that, haha. I need his help in such areas in my life. I recently found some cheap ones in the pound shop.

So as we get closer to Easter, I wanted to do a little Diy project for my little girl. I found this fun and rewarding as she will be wearing something that I made with love for her and no one else will have one like it, I hope you can all enjoy it and have a go. It should take you 30 minutes or so if you don’t have little ones around like me. (But if it takes a little longer it’s okay, do it at your own pace)  It took me around two hours, haha, so there you go. That was due to my three adorable little kids. Continue reading
