Bathroom Mirror Updated - For Free!
After sprucing up and decorating our upstairs bathroom the old
mirror stood out a bit more than what I liked.
The oak frame was stylish at the time I moved in, however I'd grown
tired of it. A little too dark for the
light and airy décor the bathroom now has.
Mirrors are incredibly expensive and fortunately this one is in
excellent condition. It made sense to
keep it and give it a facelift. The best
thing was it didn't cost me a dime.
Once again the metallic spray paint I bought to update a flower
pot and then ended up spraying another flower pot, updating my kitchen light
fixtures and a wooden basket made another appearance.
I started out by cleaning the frame and masking off the mirror
itself. Then I gave the frame a light
scuff with a piece of sandpaper. Lucky for me the original finish was long gone so it made sanding
I had laid out my trusty and well used dollar store shower
curtain. After a few light coats of
paint the old oak frame was pretty well covered. I let it dry thoroughly for about an hour. Once
dry, I removed the paper and gave the mirror a good cleaning.
