just like new

i’ve had these random Ikea mirrors for years and have taken them from apartment to apartment….. and always thought they were a little bit boring.(i know i bought them partially because they were like 4.99 or something and i had never been to Ikea)

so anyways, i decided to style them up. here is them before the magic:

and here is what they could have been, all these years….

and yes, i even made the denim rosettes myself, because i clearly need a hobby.( well, i guess this would be it)

anyways, i still need to get gabe to hang them up above the mantle, so it will be all purdy. one step at a time.

he keeps calling me “by-an-ah” which is a city in brazil notorious for being tacky. i tell him he is lucky to live in such a thrifted and cute place with someone as cool as me and all my cool stuff.

Big upps to Charley Young for the 2 ADORABLE pieces of art she has made me  in this pic. one isof my old flower shop where we met in hali, and the beloved farm that we just lost in economy. love ya, c diggy.

    I love your site! And those ikea frames look amazing! I bought the same ones so long ago and tossed them thinking they were so boring and why the hell did I buy them! URGH! I should have kept them and copied your gorgeous DIY!
