Mirror, Mirror.....A Before and After

It was love at first sight-kind of- when I spotted this mirror at my favorite thrift store.  I knew as soon as I saw it that I was going to paint it, I could just see it in my head,  and let me tell you friends, it turned out even better than I imagined!!

Here is the before shot of the mirror, in all of its gold goodness....:)

Ignore the lady who didn't clean the mirror before taking the picture...

Ahhhh, much better

For some reason, I thought hand painting with acrylic paint would let me get all of the detail on the mirror better. It took me about two minutes to realize this was an epic FAIL!


Boo-Yah!! Just what it took to get the job done!  Did I mention that the awesome gold thrift store mirror is a real heavy plastic?  Now that it is painted you can hardly tell.

Now for the reveal.....let me tell you, I am in love, love, love!!


Here they are side by side....

Better? It turned out exactly like I wanted/ imagined itThis was the very first piece in my bedroom redo-I need to get moving on it so I can show you the rest!

I am so excited!  I am linking this up HERE!
