Spotted-the object of my desire-heavy and not so heavy metal couch.
Made of all sizes pots and pans and spoons and lids.
Not for sale,unfortunately.And not to be touched,even,as the sign states.
Mirror, mirror on the wall-who is the best bejeweled of them all…
This is our mirror room-make up room-boiler room-wash up room.Basically a brick-a-brack little space with a big old gorgeous sink(not shown) full with our beauty products and accessoires.We call it the 3D room,since the mirrors are strategically placed, so we can check from all the angles our heads and hair style.
The mirrors also are a big space openers for a small rooms like this.

Mirrors and racks and flowers and frames
The rack in the corner is CD rack, which I use to hang my hair stuff and hair flowers.On top of it sits a mosaiced picture frame,which I upgraded to mirrored and stoned frame.The 3 green dots creation next to the towel rack,is a cut up floor tile,painted yellow and then with swirly green dots.Picture frames also painted by hand.
Painted mirror-suns and frames
The suns were previously silver dull color,so I had to give them my easybreazy painting brush treatment to fit the color concept of the 3d room.Glass plate on top of the big mirror-hand painted with green and bejeweled with little mirrors and stones.I hate with passion middle of the ceiling lights, so instead we have many spots lights and a disco ball,which creates very whimsical atmosphere when slowly rotating from the ceiling.
I hope I inspired you to see the possibility of even small,humble,unassuming place to become your own art gallery.
With your own touch and creations.
Surround yourself with beauty.
I love love love coconut and anything coconutty.
Coconut oil for cooking and my body,shredded coconut in my everyday energy meal,coconut water,coconut cream.
So it was only natural to hang all these coconut shells instead of curtains.Loco for coco,indeed.

I am OB.SE.SSED with all things stones, mirrors , mosaics and vintage colored glass.I just can’t help it.
They give warmth and illusion of space,especially in a small house.
I put them on my clothes-see above,on our walls,kitchen,bedroom,washroom,living room.
No mirror and wall is safe from me,armed with stones,grout, glue gun,spatula, and hammer.
Here is what I did to my kitchen wall.
I found this brand new vintage faucet in a thrift store and glued it to the wall for more pizzazz.
A simple clock after some easybreazy makeover
A white mirrored tray painted green,huge white mug-mosaiced with shells and broken china,
tons of glass stones,just scattered in plates.
Big glass jar filled with small green jar+stones.Top -glass plate with glued stones.
”In THIS economy ”tips-
1.I keep my broken china and vases for mosaics making.
My hammer loves it-and so am I.Need to let the steam?
Bang away them broken plates and puff-the stress is gone.Art therapy the easybreazy way.
(Bang with caution though-use an old towel to wrap the bangees first.)
2.I buy most of my mirrors and vintage glass jar in a thrift shops or in bulk.
Loving the process of picking old,dusty pieces people has thrown
and thinking what I can do with them…
It’s part of the thrill for me.The one-man-garbage-thing ,you know. One man’s garbage is another man’s treasure.
