B&A: Once Upon a Mirror

We got tipped off to this cool before and after over on Twitter. Anne-Marie of 10 Rooms took a huge and kinda-tacky mirror and turned it into one for the books... literally.

The mirror was a steal at only $38 bucks, but with that pink frame it was hard to figure out what to do with it. (Even the dog looks stumped!) But after gaining inspiration from a friend, Anne-Marie took it out of the basement and got to work.

Using good ol' mod podge, a brush, and the torn-out pages of an old copy of The Swiss Family Robinson (don't go having a heart attack, book lovers -- it's for the greater good!), she got to work decoupaging the frame of the mirror.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who's had the coolest makeover of them all? That's right, it's you. The pages have a great look from either near or far. The colors are neutral and the text forms an almost abstract pattern from a distance, while close up you can see the detail ad the beauty of the words.

And so, Anne-Marie and her mirror had a storybook ending of their own, and lived happily every after...

Via 10 Rooms.
