The first thing I did after cutting the paint sticks into random sizes, is, I began to lay them out into a pattern. I thought I would copy the Pinterest mirror as close as possible, but as I began to lay everything out, I didn’t love it. So I decided to stack the paint sticks instead, and I LOVE how it turned out!! (pls forgive the first few awful photos..this was PRE awesome Santa gift..aka new Olympus Pen Digital camera! Love it!!)
Laying out the Mirror and the paint sticks
Painted! little did I know it would be 6 weeks form this picture until I would actually do this post!
I should mention that there is NO reason other than being busy, that It took me so long.If I ever had even one block of like, 6 hours, I could have gotten this thing done in a day 🙂
All my pieces out and ready! ( aaaannnd ENTER new Camera!! )
Gorilla Glue rocks!
The last pieces are finally drying! I had a hard time finding heavy objects to sit
on top of the glued pieces!
A dramatic “reflection” picture for your viewing pleasure 🙂
I decided on even edges, but stacking the sticks to create some depth, and a few different levels!! I was so pleased with how it turned out 🙂 Finally, A Pinterest Success!! 😉
AND HERE SHE IS IN ALL HER GREY GLORY!!!
And a Candid of my beautiful new camera that I love!
The space I chose to hang her, is a tiny little nook in our bedroom, its hard to photograph because there is Zero Light, but I think I am happy with it there!!!
