Mirror Word Art (update those old mirrors!!)
Create new mirror word art out of an old mirror! Perfect way to refresh those dated mirrors!
Hello friends! I’m still on the mend but doing better and better each day.
So thankful it wasn’t worse!
So since I’ve been out of commission a bit, I’m sharing something I did a couple weeks ago for our Trash to Treasure Transformation today.
I created something out of an old mirror I had. Technically, it could have been trash, right?
Here is what I made….. Mirror Word Art…
Made super simple with my Silhouette Cameo.
I LOVE my Silhouette! It makes making stuff so quick and easy.
I’ve found that lately, I’ve been using it more and more. Well, since I found out I can design in other programs and then transfer to the Silhouette.
If you don’t have one or have thought about getting one, here is a super bundle to check out >>> Silhouette Bundle
My husband and I have been working so hard to give the screened porch and patio an overhaul.
I’m absolutely thrilled with it!
I’ll be sharing the rest with you soon. (and pictures of what it looked like when we moved in.)
UPDATE — See the porch and patio now, here!
I just hate to throw anything away.
So when I redesigned the study and when we built the “built-in”, I popped this old mirror in the garage.
It looks quite a bit different in this room now, huh??
For any new folks that may be stopping by, I can’t share that old photo above without sharing the new one of what it looks like now below!
Taken from approximately the same spot, with a few years separation. ;)
And update! I Can’t share that old photo without showing you what that room looks like today (9-18-19)…
See more, here.
Anyway, here it is again at a previous Christmas…..
I loved the scroll pattern and wasn’t sure I’d ever use it again but kept it anyway.
So glad I did!
It’s perfect on the porch with the word art.
I gave the frame a quick hit with a dry brush and some white paint…
Want to learn all about dry brushing? I created a video and post all about it!
You can see it, here.
I love how it brings out the details.
I designed the graphic and then transferred it into my Silhouette program, cut and done!

Or you can also use any of these transfer methods to do it if you don’t have a Silhouette machine.
So I cut it out in white vinyl and……
….didn’t love how small some of the words were.
So, I did it over and re-cut it. It was easy enough to do.
Also, I used white because I wanted it to be visible but didn’t want it to jump out at you.
Just a subtle little message.
You can really see it much better in person though.
It was hard to photograph…
I love it and the saying. It’s perfect for this relaxing little oasis we’ve created out here!
And what a simple little makeover it was too. I literally threw this together in no time.
(believe me, I did, it was crazy, madhouse around here as we readied everything for my son’s graduation party! )
So be sure to PIN this for later. You may want to make some Mirror Word Art one day too!
Let’s see what my friends are up to this month…..
I know, it doesn’t look like much but here’s what’s up next! ;)
UPDATE! See it now, here!
I”m with you, Nancy. It’s too hard to get rid of something and it’s always fun to find a new purpose. I LOVE the new look! Especially the word art. Fun!
Thanks Larissa! :)
Hi Nancy do hope your feeling better now, read what happened.
Love the mirror with the lettering… mirrors look great in an outdoor space. Can’t wait to see what you did with yours stay tuned!! feel better and have a great day :))
I’m coming along over here, thank you. :)
Hope you are doing well!!
hey girl love the mirror!
Thanks so much Shawnna!! :)
Fantastic idea, Nancy! I love how the scroll details pop now – and you’ve given me another push to try to learn my Cameo!
OH yes, do!!! I resisted and didn’t for a very long time. I love that thing now! :)
This turned out so cute! It’s times like these I wish I had a Silhouette.
Thanks so much Lauren! Yes, it is fun and I love creating things with it! :)
Nancy, just read about your fall! Yikes! I’m so sorry and I hope you are feeling better. Oh, I hope you didn’t take that Percocet on an empty stomach because it will make you sick, experience can be a great learning tool, huh? I had to take it with food and then it helped a lot. Something to think about.
Your mirror is gorgeous you did a great job. Please take care of yourself and don’t over do.
Thank you Sally, I am! :) Yep, I hadn’t had much to eat on that last dose. (I was stuck on the couch laying down (too much pain to try to get up and out) and couldn’t eat much…and wanted the percocet to work so I could get up!)
I should’ve known better, I’ve taken it before. Thanks for the sweet words and well wishes!
Love how this added a fun touch to this mirror! I also love what I see in the reflection…looks like a relaxing retreat out there! Glad to hear you are on the mend! XOXO
Thanks Christy! I love it out here now although it’s really too hot lately to enjoy! ;) I need to get some photos so I can share this space finally.
Another reason for me to get a silhouette machine. Yay, happy to hear you can create graphic in PicMonkey and transfer. Love the sentiment on your mirror and the fonts you combined to create the graphic! Glad to hear you’re on the mend, Nancy?
Oh yes, you do Marie! You will love it, I do! :)
Thanks so much friend! xo
The mirror looks great dry painted like that! For some reason, I never think to do dry painting. I need to use that technique on a mirror I have. It’s plastic, but once painted, I think it would look good!
So glad you are feeling better! That was pretty scary! xo
Oh yes, I love dry brush painting and use it for so many different things, techniques. It’s great to add just a bit of “something” without changing it completely. :)
Thanks Karen!! xoxo
Came out amazing! Love it
Thank you Lori! :)
