Mirror for a Hawkeye fan

My sister-in-law and I found this mirror standing in a closet in an apartment after someone moved out.  The dresser for it was no where to be found.  I mentioned that it was a good mirror if I painted it black.  She looked at me like I was crazy!  

But then when she noticed that I was serious, she said, "Can you put a Hawkeye on it?"  So this mirror is for her apartment (which is full of Hawkeye garb!).  Enjoy it Ruthie!

I primed it with Adhesion Primer, and gave it two coats of black paint with a nylon brush (see this post).  I Googled the Hawkeye symbol, printed it on heavy paper, and cut it out.  I used regular craft paint and a stencil brush to paint it on (two coats).

Very cool, I am sure she loves it:) How did I miss you were blogging again? I guess I will be browsing your page again on a regular basis, I have become kind of a blog junkie (mostly just those of you I know), now I am all caught up! LOVE Leah's letters and stuff, can't wait to see the finished room:) How about some pics of your addition???? Just a thought!!
