Good bye ugly mirrors. Have fun at the dump.

 So, our last project before school and work started was to take down our ugly mirrors in the master bath and put up pretty, new ones. We were super excited to find the perfect mirrors at TJ Maxx Home Goods. If you haven't discovered this store, you must go. It is absolutely wonderful! Sunday afternoon, Craig and I decided to try to take down the old mirrors. We thought way too much into the process. We got online and looked up "how to's and finally decided to pry them off the wall using a small crowbar and a hammer. We both had on goggles (we looked really hot!) After we taped the mirrors to keep from cracking, we actually got the mirrors off the wall with no breakage. The only problem was that the builder glued them to the wall and when we pulled off the old mirrors, it left several circles on the wall. I was super impressed that Craig was able to patch the wall and repaint it to look perfect! I am so lucky to have such a handy hubby. The finished product is wonderful. I could not have asked for anything better.

Ugly, boring mirror.

This is what the wall looked like behind the mirror. Craig fixed all the imperfections and it is perfect now!
