Three years ago I saw a Craigslist post for a free mirror. A free 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 foot mirror. Gigantasaurus Rex. So I thought, "Why not?"
I had grand plans of making an frame for it. Leaning it up against a wall in our living room. Pure awesomeness.
And somehow it ended up behind my brother's shed. He was going to help me make a frame since he had all the wood-cutting tools.
And then three years went by. Hmmmmm. Talk about an unfinished project.
The time came for them to move out of their little duplex, which meant the mirror needed to come out from behind the shed.
How do you move a mirror that big when you don't want to pay for a moving truck? Why, you strap it to the top of a Durango and drive really, really slowly. That's how.
And then you play with it in the living room for a while.
And then you lean it up against the only free wall space you can find.
And then you realize it now has a big scratch in the back.
And then you realize you don't want to make an expensive frame for a scratched mirror.
So one of these days you'll come up with an idea for a cool cheap frame idea that everyone is going to see and say, "That is so cool! Why didn't I think of that? You are so creative, Molly!"
Until then, here is some mirror art for you.
We call this one "Time To Clean Our Room."
