Why, my latest project of course!

Take 2 plain MALMA mirrors --2.99ea. at Ikea (okay, I got mine at Goodwill for 99 cents).

Take 1 old JENGA game -- Actual retail price - Huh?  (again, got mine at Goodwill for 1.99 and the kids NEVER played it)

Paint the pieces, and the frame of the mirror if needed (the ones I got were the bright red ones, so the color pallete didn't go)

Hot glue on in a pleasing pattern, and hang. 

Painting mirrors is a pain!  The first one I did I taped then painted, and when I pulled off the tape, you could still see the RED reflected in the mirror, so the second one I didn't tape at all, and I sort of smooshed the paint under the edge of the frame where the mirror was.  No reflection, but now I have to scrape the paint off the mirror.  But whatever works for you.  No pressure.

Finished project:



Photographing mirrors is hard too - you always get that annoying glare!!

I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up.

My kids are the reason I was born.

I don't just embrace insanity, I feel it up, french kiss it and buy it a drink!

Such a creative way to repurpose a game.  Thanks for the tut.
