Painted Mirror

This is a $4 Target mirror that I bought along with a roll of contact paper and some glass paint to make some wall art for my kitchen. All I did was cut out the letters in contact paper to make up the quote I wanted, peeled them onto the mirror, and then painted over the entire glass with red paint, (red glass paint and then an opaque acrylic over that). Once it dried, I went back and unpeeled the contact paper, which revealed the mirror-writing underneath. I love this piece... It was so cheap and it looks so fun in our space! For those of you who are not nerds, the quote is from Harry Potter and reads "Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light". When people come into my kitchen and recognize Dumbledore's words, it is almost a subtle test of how awesome their personality really is.
