I found some cute "french country" scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby. I just attached it to the wood with 1/2 water, 1/2 school glue mixture since I'm out of modge podge. This works great and is cheaper! I didn't worry about measuring the paper correctly because the edges are going to be sanded off anyways.
Edges sanded. I even sanded some of paper on the front side to look more worn.
I added some light stain to the edges and very lightly to the paper for more "age". Paper soaks up stain very quick so I applied the stain very, very lightly.
Now I like it flipped over with the mirror on top! And it's going to look great in my new bathroom.
Friday also means it's time for a Recipe Swap over at my friend, Colleen's blog. Got a great recipe to share?
I have a super easy recipe to share. The special ingredient is cake mix of your choice!
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box of cake mix
1/3 cup oil
2-3 tablespoons water
1 tsp vanilla
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together. Put small balls of mixture on cookie sheets. Bake for 9-11 minutes. Enjoy! My son makes these by himself while I supervise the oven.
Well tonight is date night with hubby! We're eating Chinese...not my favorite. But for a trade off he's going to Eclipse movie with me. LOL Love that guy!
