Inspired by Grace...An Inspirational Ballerina Mirror

Pin It

Well, this next project is more feminine than you tend to see at WhisperWood Cottage. It's pink, white, and has a ballerina on it. Definitely a first here! It was inspired by the ballerina/princess/cutie-patootie below.

Her name is Grace, and she is a brilliantly beautiful and creative person. She gets it all from her aunt mom and dad. Well, of course, Grace is a lover of all things pink, purple, and princess related. She also takes dance classes and loves her tutus. Isn't Grace the perfect name for a ballerina? I came across a quote that said Grace is "the outward expression of the inward harmony of the soul." I was totally inspired!

With the help of Design Divas, Mythic Paint, Purdy, and Rockler, I turned this gold vintage mirror into a pretty pink and white inspiration piece inspired by Grace. See the full tutorial here.
