My Acid Mirror Mess up!

So I am sure many of you bloggers have seen this wonderful acid mirrors people have been doing. They are super pretty and I love mirrors so of course I wanted to make one myself.
This example picture is of one of the mirrors my mother did

Here is the tutorial on the blog that we read to figure out how to do it.

My mother and I made these together, hers turned out great! I can't say the same about mine. They say it works different with different mirrors that is definitely true! When I did mine it stripped off so much of the actual mirror there was like hardly any left and it looked just like a framed piece of fabric. I was very unhappy with it. My mother had to leave the acid on hers for long time and still had alot of mirror showing. I was really bummed at first because I had used a mirror I really loved expecting it to turn out great, and now it was ruined

I had the idea to change it into a frame, I was able to soak the acid on the mirror for a bit longer, and it turned into just a piece of glass! I think its an adorable frame so glad it did not go to waste!
I printed off this poster print at Walgreen's of Lacie & Bella. Soooooooo cute! I love it!

I am sure I will again try the acid mirror thing again because it is so gorgeous.

I also printed out and framed this cute picture today because my coupon for poster prints at Walgreen's actually expires tomorrow. This cute picture is hung at the top of the stairs between my bedroom and my guest bedroom.

& Happy Halloween Everyone as well as Happy 23rd Birthday to my boyfriend Sidney!!
( I tickled him for this picture lol he usually make stupid faces when I try to get him to smile for a picture)
