I started with this antique mirror that had been sitting around since our move. This mirror hung in my sister's room growing up and I somehow ended up with it when I moved into my first apartment. It was originally light yellow but I decided to experiment with silver spray paint one day. . . (not so great).

The blog world is full of great chalkboard projects, so I decided to take my turn at one by taking an old mirror and creating a little message center to hang in the hallway by the back door that we use the most.
