Lifes A Beach Mirror Window Frame

Life's A Beach Mirror Window Frame


Here's a classic examples of a window restyled! Where once it was looked out of, it now can be looked in to.

We’ve just given her a little day trip to our favorite beach and brought the winter beauty into full view! A little distressing with fresh paint, mirror glass and some adorable iron hooks, turns this throw-away into a treasured keepsake.

This mirror was treated with a coat of rich brown/red then covered with ivory and lightly shabbied to add character. A coat of varathane was the finishing touch.

View not included!

Approx. Dimensions: 37" x 25"


Pattern or design used: My own design - SemperNova
