Love me a Goodwill makeover. Before I get started I want to share something a reader back awhile said to me. She actually private messaged me and said she heard that bloggers that do these thrifty budget friendly crafts don’t actually keep them. The companies pay us to do them and then we get rid of them.
Let me clarify a few things. If a company pays me to share something, I will always disclose that by saying this is a sponsored post. I don’t do that many sponsored posts as you may notice. Dollar tree does not pay me, nor does Goodwill. If they ever do in the future y’all will know.
This week you will actually see more sponsored post than you have all year. Because this is the time of year companies seek us out most. With that said, this is not a sponsored post:)
I do keep just about all the crafts and makeovers I do. Hello, if you looked in my closets you would see. Some I do give as gifts, and many things I makeover over two and three times. Don’t get me wrong, Goodwill has gotten back a few of my makeovers that I simply just didn’t have the room in the closets anymore. I do have to be able to shut the doors.
Today, I am sharing a Goodwill mirror makeover to winter art.
Now onto my Goodwill mirror makeover, 4th or 5th time around.
The first makeover was simple. I painted the gold frame with some Annie Sloan chalk paint and added a stick on Monogram initial.
I painted the mirror with black chalk paint and stenciled Love on it. This is what it looked like up until yesterday. That is our old thrifty bedroom filled with makeovers
I had it this way for about 4 years or so.
I decided I needed some friendly fun art work for our front porch.
When I made the Welcoming thrifty porch makeover sign in the summer it was a big hit. I will put that back out probably in the Spring.
I painted the inside as you see with white linen chalky paint.
Then I took some red chalky paint and just went over the trim quickly with a sponge brush. I will be doing lots of blues and reds on the porch this year.
I bought a pack of music stencils and already had the lettered stencils. I used black craft paint and my little round dabber and just made it fun and whimsical like. Nothing perfecto, just fun!
I then lightly sanded the entire piece to look a little weathered and hung it up on the existing wall art.
