Farmhouse Décor: Easy Painted Mirror

I wanted to explore the farmhouse décor trend and asked my niece if she had any outdoor farmhouse style decorating ideas. I have that flower wheelbarrow in the backyard, the wooden table to grow my bagged vegetables, and we installed a shed (a much-needed shed!). Now, I wanted something that might match.

She brought in four ideas, including the terrific little DIY farmhouse house number sign I shared a last month, this sweet little jar flower holder and this Farmhouse Décor: Age and Stencil a Crate. This painted mirror is number four, however, we added a fifth farmhouse décor craft I hope to share next week!

We actually made everything at the same time as these four projects using lot of the same materials for all the projects. Not only did it keep costs down, it sped things along.

Farmhouse Décor: Easy Painted Mirror Notes:

• If you plan on hanging this outside, you may want to varnish the frame first. The more coats, the more water resistent.

• If you do varnish the frame, do not varnish over the paint as it will discolor. It will also distort the mirror.

• This is a mirror, so you will see reflections in it. Be aware of that when hanging.

• I cannot emphasize enough to allow this to dry completely. Several hours should be good. I simply left it laying flat on a table overnight.

• As with any craft, personalize it to make it yours!

• Nearly all the materials necessary to make this simple Farmhouse Décor: Easy Painted Mirror can be purchased at at JoAnn, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby.

The path is considered an easy route for bicyclists, so it’s designed for more recreational use than challenging bike rides. Regardless, a trip around the lake allows bicyclists time to relax and enjoy the area around them while working out on their bikes.

You can bike from Buffalo to Niagara Falls (or vice versa) via the Riverwalk.

Note: up in Niagara County from May – October you can see the “semi-professional” bicyclists all the time. It is cooler weather compared to the rest of the county (90°+ is crazy-hot for the area and does not happen often) and so much enjoyed by bicyclists.
