Mirror, Mirror on the Wall…

Cody and I love to do home improvement projects around the house. Since the Light family flood of 2010 where we had a swimming pool in our living room, the house had been in a constant state of improvement. Now that everything is done for the most part, we went on to tackle other projects I’ve been dying to get to.

We decided we wanted to spruce up our bathroom and bedroom mirror. Look at it, it’s just a sheet of glass hanging on the wall. Bor-ing!

So we decided we wanted to frame it out using crown moulding. Here’s what you need to complete a project like this: a few pieces of crown moulding picked up at your local Home Depot or Lowes. This was only $1.72 a foot!

Next, you will need a can of paint in whatever color tickles your fancy. I like flat black since it matches with everything else in the bathroom and bedroom.

And of course you can’t forget your hunk of burning love willing to help you with this project. Ohhh, he’s so cute!

Once you’ve made your measurements you can cut the crown moulding to size. Be sure to cut the ends at a 45 degree angle so they line up at each corner. (It took us a couple tries to get the measurements right, but eventually, with enough patience (Cody’s the patient one, not me!) we cut them to size and started painting.)

Besides taking pictures and holding the boards while Cody made his measurements, this was my only job. I leave the heavy thinking, planning and executing to him, he leaves the “girly” stuff like painting to me.

Once the paint is dry it’s time to hang them up. We had to use stabilizers behind the crown moulding to make it even on all sides, but I’m very happy with the way it turned out.

What do you think?

We also did our bedroom mirror. It really makes it stand out more.

Two “like new” mirrors for less than $50 dollars! Now that’s what I call a good investment!

What home improvement projects have you been meaning to get to?

Any inexpensive ideas, please feel free to share them in the comments!

      I received an E Mail the other day and this is what it was in it. I think it is worth pssaing along and think it worthy for everyone that reads this to pass along.That is those of you who value your freedom.Paul Hollrah over at FSM thinks that the issue of Obamas REAL birth placecan be resolved by Obama answering one simple question:What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakartaand Karachi?So how did a young man who arrived in New York in early June 1981 withoutthe price of a hotel room in his pocket, suddenly come up with the price of around- the- worldtrip just one month later?And once he was on a plane, shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi,what passport was he offering when he passed through customs and Immagration?The American people not only deserve to have answers to these questions, TheyMUST have answers!It makes the debate over Obamas citizenship a rather short and simple one.Did he travel to Pakistan in 1981, at age 20? Yes, by his own admission.What passport did he travel under?There are only three possibilities. He traveled with a U.S. passport, he traveledwith a British passport, Obama traveled with an indonesia passport.Is it possible that Obama traveled with a U.S. passport in 1981? No. It is notpossible! Reason, Pakistan was on the State Departments no travel list. in1981.Conclusion:When Obama went to pakistan in 1981, he was traveling either with a Britishpassport or an Indonesian passport.If he were traveling with a British passport that would provide proof that he was bornin Kenya on August 4, 1961, not in Hawaii as he claims. And if he were taravelingwith an Indonesian passport, that would tend to prove relinquished whateverprevious citizenship he held, British or American, prior to being adopted by hisIndonesian step-father in 1967.Whatever the truth of the matter, the American people need to know how he managed to become a naturalborn American citizen between 1981 and 2008!Given the destructive nature of his plans for America, as illustrated by his speech before Congress, and the disastrous spending plan, he has presented to Congressthe sooner we learn the truth of all of this, THE BETTER!
