A good, dear friend's mom is turning 80 next week and I wanted to make her something for her birthday. We came up with a mirror which I was going to decoupage with scenes from their summer lakehouse.
I started out that way, but it just didn't work! So I started painting on the black background, and this mirror frame emerged. I'm not sure if her mom would like it and I'm kind of hoping NOT - because DH loves it. So I have another old mirror that I am going to try to decoupage and make into the item that we originally wanted.
I feel a tiny bit guilty but not too bad. Each would get their present, and if DH likes something that I make I want to keep it.
What do you think? Should I let DH have it if the mom would like it?
