B&A: Stenciled Mirror

It never fails to amaze and excite me when people put treasures on the curb to be taken as trash.  I am not too proud to "dumpster dive" or rummage through other people's trash.  It's a blessing and a curse, but I see potential in [almost] anything.  On my way home from the grocery on Thursday, I spotted this little ditty at the curb.  I whipped my car around and loaded 'er up.  With only a small amount of spray paint and a bit of elbow grease, I turned trash into treasure.



I used a pressed board stencil that I found at an estate sale.  I simple cleaned the mirror with nail polish remover, laid it on a sheet, put the press board over it and sprayed away.


  1. Absolutely awesome! really like that idea!

  2. Thank you so much! It was so easy. It literally took longer to wait for the spray paint to dry than it did for the entire rest of the project!!

  3. I LOVE this! I have a similar mirror that has a broken wooden frame. I now know what I'll be doing with it. Thanks for the great idea!
