Dollar Tree Mirror Redo

One Dollar Tree mirror that has never quite fit in.
Forgive my smudgy prints all over it :) 

Add some pretty sea glass I found on clearance at Michaels. Oh, Michaels, you addicting store!
It didn't turn out how I wanted, and you could see the hot glue through the pieces of glass.

Then I remembered how much I loved Laurie @ Scene of the Grime's seashell encrusted mirror.
So I added another layer, this time with Mod Podge.
 Et voila!

Methinks I love it.

Along with my slightly embellished starfish plaque, I'm on my way to collecting beachy decor for the master bedroom. Now to figure out where to put it.
Thanks, Laurie for the inspiration!

Do you have a themed room that you're collecting loot for?

  1. Your mirror looks adorable. I have a beach house where everything I do is pretty much sea glass green and blue. This is a great Idea, it turned out wonderful.
