Upsycling to a Toymirror! DIY project!

Since a couple of weeks I’ve been collecting toys. I didn’t care if they were broken or missing paint. This because I started a great upsycle project: The ToyMirror!
It’s super easy to make and it will definitely give an extra touch to a (child’s) room.

What you need:

– A simple mirror with frame (I used a square one, bought it at a secondhand shop)
– A lot of toys (preferably not too big)
– Spray paint (your choice of color) and primer
– Superglue (or comparable)
– Masking tape
– Scissors
– Sandpaper

Step one:
make sure you sand down the frame before you put your primer on it. Or else the paint will not hold because of the greasy spots.

Step two:
tape the mirror, so when you put your primer on it, your mirror won’t get spray painted as well.

Step three:Spray paint the primer layer and wait for it to dry completely!

Step four:
Spray paint it in your choice of color. For a subtle look you can use grey or black, but if you want it to stand out, you could use some neon colors!

Step five:

Put toys all over the frame, and see if they fit well. If so, take the superglue and glue the toys to the frame. (make sure the toys are fat free, I put them in the dishwasher. If they are not fat free, the paint will not hold!)

Step six:
The final step! Spray paint it all one last time, wait for it to dry and if necessary spray paint it one last time. Wait for it to dry and then sit back and admire the result!

I would like to see the results of other people who have tried this upsycle ToyMirror!
