DIY : Upcycled Mirror with Decoupage

Spencer's parents kindly gave us their old mirror when we first moved into our house five years ago, it was a little dated but we figured it would look good enough until we managed to replace it. We pretty much forgot about it until we came to re-decorate our living room. We were going to buy a replacement, something a little more funky, but I thought I'd try upcycling the old one first in an attempt to save some pennies.


I decided to use a mix of all of the papers that I received in past Crafty Creatives boxes to create a patchwork look. I cut the paper to size, painted the frame with my Decopatch glue, pressed the paper on and then painted a layer of Decopatch glue on top. 

I am so pleased with the result and best of all it cost absolutely nothing at all as I used items that I already had sitting in the house.


Bob enjoyed helping me too. The drawer that you can see in the corner is another decoupage project that I will be posting about soon.

Have you ever tried decoupage?
