I eyed up this mirror over the summer at a thrift store and snagged it immediately. I thought it was so cool and I knew that a simple coat of spray paint would instantly revive this baby.
Let me explain the red paint on the top part of the mirror -- for a moment, I wanted to decorate our office with red accents. I saw a picture of a room somewhere that had green walls, very similar my office color (Behr Garden Spot), with red accent pieces and it looked really nice. I used this mirror to test the red and good thing I did because I decided that red wasn't for me, or our office.
|Cha Ching!!! Check out the price tag. Yup, $15. Ahhhhh.|
After one coat of white RUST-OLEUM Gloss spray paint, my 44 year old mirror now looks like this:
|A rather nice touch to our office if I don't say so myself. |
BTW - pay no mind to the ugly yellow chair in the corner of this picture. Hopefully, one of my x-mas gifts will be to have this reupholstered. Fingers crossed :)
|I love the glossy white paint. And my favorite part is the dotted border along the frame.|
All said and done, this mirror put me $19 in the hole. I'm certainly not complaining.
So the next time you're about to throw out - what you think is an old and ugly mirror - think twice before chucking it the curb because a can of glossy spray paint can make a world of difference.
I LOVE SPRAY PAINTING!!!!
