For the mirror above we used Rust-Oleum Chalky Finish Furniture Paint in Hessian.
I’ve been working on simplifying the color palettes in the rooms in our house, and I found myself staring at this wall in our kitchen with an old brassy mirror and black sconces. First, I placed the mirror onto some butcher paper on the floor of my garage.
Be sure to let it dry completely before picking it up; you don't want any thumbprints showing up on your freshly-painted frame!
We like the aesthetic of things showing a little wear; so when our mirror showed a few scrapes and scratches, we embraced those flaws.
While waiting for the spray paint to dry I simply took the two professionally cut mats that came with my ugly thrift store frames and painted them.
And then think of the new life that old mirror will enjoy in your bathroom, or wherever it might end up.Spray paint is a quick and easy solution when transforming furniture with quirky or intricate designs because you can cover those hard to reach places.With so many colours and textures to choose from in our Universal All Surface Spray Paint range, you can give any mirror a completely new look. For most frames, you can also opt for furniture paint. and once you’ve mastered that, make sure you come back for more ideas!I let it dry for about an hour before applying the final layers of paint.Once the primer was dry, I started applying the paint! I chose satin instead of gloss because I wanted a mostly matte surface to give the frame a vintage-y look.Spray Paint – I used Rust-Oleum Flat Metallic Soft Iron Spray Paint – left over from my Garage Trash to Romantic Industrial Beauty Shelves.
