Paper Tile Mirror

Teal, neon pink and olive green is seriously one of my favorite color combos!  It reminds me of Mexico in the 1960s and I have no idea why.  DecoArt makes this sassy neon pink paint that I would eat if I could.....but unfortunately I can't.  Instead I used it to create the eye popping paper tiles for a little bathroom mirror project.   I cut my own mirror frame, but you could use a store bought frame for this project.....Totally up to you!  When coated in Famowood Glaze Coat, it's protected and ready for endless water splashes and hair spray!  Faux tile projects are soooo much lighter than using real tile and you can design your own in ANY pattern.  Be creative my sweet friends and always remember to Make Your Mark!

Watch how to make it here!
