Money is VERY tight at the moment, so it’s back to basics, recycling and re-using. It’s what I used to do, and enjoyed doing, but when life is hectic and money is easy to come by (ie cheap credit!), it’s just simpler and lazier to go and buy new.
I needed a mirror for Project Cathedral, something to do justice to the super glam girliness of the apartment, and the budget for mirrors was blown on the Venetians for the bedroom and bathroom. So after a dig around in the cellar, I unearthed an old, gold mirrror from one of the refurbished flats. Couple of coats of shiny Hammerite black metallic gloss found in the same cellar, and some super-glue and crystals later – one transformed mirror.
