Day 14 ( I think lol) #100dayproject : fix this frame! This is an old mirror I got from my late gran. The top part of the frame had always been broken and I kept the piece for ages so I could fix it.  Now of course when I get a chance to fix it as part of this project, the piece is gone. We searched thru every storage box and everything nook and cranny, trying to find it for months but nada.  So! After asking a few woodworking friends if I could pay them to make a piece to fit and got no takers, I pulled out some paper clay and made one my dang self. Once it's dry, it'll get a nice sanding to smooth and sharpen it up, then the whole thing will be painted then silver leafed. I think my gran would be proud that I Macgyvered a solution myself!  #doityourself #100dayproject #100daysofcreativegoodness #fixit

  • skinnybugstudioGood for you!
  • iamkateyzExcellent solution! 👊🏻
  • gastownkittyCan't wait to see the finished product! I have a cool vintage bubble mirror with broken frame detail. Paper clay sounds like a great idea!
