I am going to start by professing my love for the Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers. I only wish I had these on hand during my high school years, oh the madness that I could of come up with!
I mentioned in a previous post for my son’s dress up area, I used these markers to add a little something extra to my son’s mirror in his bedroom.
I used the markers on this mirror by creating the road and then also the wording. I used stickers to add the car and the signs. This was a simple project that was easily done under $10!
After I did this, I knew I would be adding words and extra touches to mirrors throughout our house. We recently purchased a dresser that I redid, but I had the mirror in the garage without a place for it. These past few weeks we have been giving our kitchen and update and as part of that we have a large wall in there that I knew would be perfect for the mirror.
I decided to head to Walmart and pick up a few Elmer’s Painters Paint Markers, they are now sold in singles for only $1.97! Of course, I wanted one of every color, but I tried to use constraint. To view my entire shop head over to my Google + story!
I thought I would use both the green and brown; however, I ended up just using brown for this one. I wanted to write the verse “Be still and know that I am God” on the mirror. Our last name is ‘Still’ and I have always felt that last name was picked for me, because I have always had to remind myself of this verse my entire life.
Typically, when I write on a mirror with painters markers, I go over it first with a dry erase marker that I can use as my outline. Unfortunately, I had to free hand it this time since my dry erase markers went missing. I highly recommend though using those first. Once the painter markers dry, then you can simply erase the outline from the dry erase markers.
I wrote the verse out on the mirror, which we had just painted and stained. Then, I removed the painters tape and hung it up!
I will likely add some decals to it when I find the perfect ones and then flank the sides of the mirror with wall decor. This is simple way to add something extra to a mirror, plus now that it is in my kitchen I will see it every day and remember this verse.
