I’ve been meaning to show you the new monogram for my tall leaner mirror since October, when I applied it, but time just seemed to keep getting away from me.
I ordered this copper-colored vinyl monogram from blogging friends, Fern and Fran, who blog at Twice as Nice and operate a vinyl business on Etsy. I met the girls when Fern asked me to help design their blog button back in the summer.
The monogram was easy to install. I made sure that it was level and I adhered it to the mirror with no trouble at all. I had intended it to be located at the top of the mirror and actually began installing it in that position. It was not until I had finished adhering it and stood back to admire my handiwork that I realized that I had put it on upside down!! I mean, it’s an “S” and it looked like I had it on the right way. If I had taken just a little more time to examine the letter, I would have seen that one end of the “S” has a larger curl and that there is a shadow inside the letter. OOPS…
I panicked, but my little brain went to work, the synapses started firing, and voila- it came to me~ turn the mirror upside down and let the monogram be at the bottom of the mirror!
Now, if you think that turning a seven-foot tall mirror that weighs in at over 150 pounds is easy~ think again. But I’m a stubborn one and didn’t want to wait for for Mr. Sullivan to get home, so I did it myself. I think it all turned out well, and I think I actually like the monogram better at the bottom, anyway.
Note: There has been some concern that I moved this mirror recently, when in actuality, I did this before my fall and resulting concussion in November. There’s no way I’d try it now in a state of dizziness!
If you’ve ever been at all interested in ordering a vinyl for your walls or mirrors, stop by to visit the twins to see what they have in their Etsy Shop. And if you don’t find exactly what you’re looking for, they will be more than willing to work with you to design a custom piece, like I did for this item and for the two other vinyls that I ordered as gifts.
