M's Mini-Met...



I am one who is more inclined to look at a smallish something that I
already have...and give it all little spruce instead of a major overhaul...
a "mini-met", if you will.

And the shell mirror above has been bugging me for quite a while...
{my cat has been enjoying it as a bed...I don't know why these things
happen, they just do! ;}




...although quite divinely encrusted...still a tad boring and I need another
mirror on the wall like I need to wear a larger pant size...NOT!






So, today...it got feet!





And became a shellicious vanity tray!






Just popped a bit of glue on...and as quick as you can say "Bob's your uncle!"
it was ready to go!

{maybe next week I will cover one of my cats with shells and have a "major met"
for you!}


WE WOULD LOVE IT IF YOU'D JOIN IN OUR GIVE AWAY !!

  1. I love it! Now me? I'd have the thing slathered in white and more white..so thick it would look like frosting..but that's me..Great idea and it should look stunning with some soft candles glowing against the reflection of the glass...ahhh the simple things in life just keep getting better.

  13. I wonder how long it has taken to glue all those shells onto the frame, looks like there are thousands! It is a beautiful thing. I love the vanity tray transformation just as much as I loved the mirror as a mirror.
