I was pokin' around on line and came across an idea to use something I already had. Ya, go figure! I may not be using the "good stuff" like Karla at Karla's Cottage suggests but.....well, actually, this is the junk, ha!
I bought a couple "boxes" of junk from a couple estate sales for the door knobs. Apparently, no one else is making those picture holder door knobs around here cause mine were flyin' out the door last fall. So, there were also these door face plates in the boxes.
Enter Robo Margo!
I don't remember exactly how I found her but after I got there I realized she had a mirror etching project in the latest Flea Market Style magazine. Good thing too cause I was confused by the magazine directions. If anyone else was, she has the instructions free for a while because of the published article. All kinds of re-purposing ideas, right up my alley, check her out!
So short story long, this is what I made.
Margo calls them sun catchers but I think they'll be just as cute hung on a door knob or peg.
I didn't waver much from her design, maybe a little more use of the re-bar wire. What's the saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
Linking up today with Kathleen at Faded Charm for her 90th White Wednesday, (WOW!) where you'll always find inspiration.
