Remove the glass and any backing from the frame. Paint the frame, if desired, and let it dry.

36- by 48-inch cardboard display board
Foam mounting squares
Colored tape and stickers
2 battery-operated touch lights
Sticker-adorned self-adhesive hooks
Start with a 36- by 48-inch cardboard display board (available at office or craft supply stores for about $5) and a mirror. After affixing the mirror to the center panel of the board with foam mounting squares, use colored tape and stickers to create a trompe l'oeil vanity.
Add a pair of battery-operated touch lights and a handful of sticker-adorned self-adhesive hooks for clothes and accessories. Berry baskets, attached with paper fasteners, hold brushes, ribbons, and other things of beauty.
