Have you been following the Bloggy Olympics? I decided to take part in an event this week: the paint event.
I've had this wooden mirror in my garage for a while. I got it as part of the dresser set that I painted for Chloe's room, but didn't need the mirror for her room. I didn't really have a purpose for the mirror, but was afraid it would break if it sat in the garage much longer. Not like I've ever broken anything in the garage in the past!
Painting mirrors is so easy. There is no need to tape off the mirror...get as much paint on it as you want. All you have to do to get the paint off is to use a razor blade to scrape it off. It usually comes off easily.
This is after one coat of Benjamin Moore Stunning. See the primer sprayed right on the mirror and the blue paint? No problem!
I was inspired by these gold corners on picture frames by A Thoughtful Place.
I used some Martha Stewart metallic paint to add gold corners onto my mirror.
I like the way it turned out and how it looks with the other gold and navy stuff on my mantle.
Here's a little before and after of the mantle:
I still love the Gino Hollander painting that was up there. It's just found a new home in my living room. I'll show you more of my living room on Monday, if you want to check back.
