This year I'm reusing the My Stache idea I originally got off of pinterest, along with a cute m&m tag from here. This jar has been the best. First I made one for myself to keep in my pantry, then as a birthday gift, then Graduation gift and now as a Father's Day gift. It's the perfect catch all gift with a little tweeking! I will encourage my hubby to take it to work so it doesn't get confused with my stache.

There are so many different tutorials out there for framing in your "builder grade mirror." I referenced this one. My handy husband who is a bit tired of my projects lost at a game of miniture golf and my prize was for him to do this project. Score for me! I went out and bought baseboards from a trim & door store, then he cut them down to size, nailed them together and painted them with some leftover paint I had used in the house (Horsehair Brown). Used fast drying silicone to attach it to the mirror and tape to hold it in place. I think he did a fantastic job!
Just like most hallways, we have a hall of doors and guests never know which door to open so few months back I saw a pic on pinterest of an office that had signs for the doors. So I tried to come up with my own version. I found this bracket at Rod Works. It had a sign hanging from it that said "Friends Welcome" I broke it off. Then had they neighbor with the power tools cut out the same shape of the previous sign. I painted it to match the trim on the doors. Then had a piece of vinyl cut to put on the board. I drilled a little hole in top of sign and attached fishing wire to it to the bracket.
