Labor Day project

Besides sleeping in late and painting my toes this color (hurray for the return of dark nail polish), I crafted yesterday. I've wanted to paint or do something to a plain white mirror I have. I went over to AC Moore, which was an experience in itself, and bought some silver leaf paint. Once I got home, I go to work.

before=white and plain


silvery sheen

that apparently doesn't come off hands so easily...

after (and a peek into my room decor)

I do like how it turned out, but I think it needs another coat or 2 and a bit more dimension- so the next step is perhaps something papier mache? But that's for another day... :)

How did you spend your Labor Day?
