Whenever I have a project I love so much I want to share it everywhere, with everyone, I call it my Michigan J. Frog, from a 1955 WB cartoon. Catch the video here.
If you can’t watch the video (are you reading blogs at work?!?), I’ll summarize – but it won’t be as funny. So you have to catch the clip at some point. A gentleman finds a singing frog and brings him from place to place (even renting an auditorium) to show him off, but the kicker is the frog only sings for him. When I’m super excited and telling anyone with ears about my latest DIY, I picture me skulking around with a frog in a box, and laugh.
Because I see big, old, builder’s basic mirrors in the trash all the time, I submitted my stenciled & antiqued mirror in the hopes of saving a few from a similar fate. If you missed, or snoozed through, the original post, check out the feature on Brooklyn Limestone here.
There are more than a week’s worth of fabulous projects, so I suggest you head over to Brooklyn Limestone anyway to check out these genius ideas and makeovers:
Here’s a list of who else was invited to partake:
