George Bernard Shaw once said: “You use a glass mirror to see your face; you use works of art to see your soul.” So, my question is, why can’t your speculum reflect BOTH to the world? This how-to is ALL about taking that tawdry, tired-looking old mirror you have lying around and have been either meaning to replace or toss out and resurrecting the poor thing. To re-purpose and give new life and new meaning to your old things is FRUGAL. Keep money in your pocket by re-using what you already have lying around collecting dust.
How To: Mirrors Re Purosed!
Step #1: Be Practical – If the mirror is already cracked and unfixable, by all means, throw it away. But, if it just lacks luster, has been collecting dust for a while, or just doesn’t match anything in your house anymore, I say, why waste more money?
Step #2: Decorate ye old mirror – Splash on some paint, break out the hot craft glue gun & those old fishbowl stones you have lying around that you haven’t been able to find a use for in years. Grab some seashells off of your nearby beach when you are out for an evening stroll and wash ‘em up. There are a million things you can do with what you already have. Have some extra remnants of cloth lying around but not enough to make something constructive out of? cut strips and make ribbons out of it! Be creative. Have fun. After all, it’s YOUR project.
