About a month or so ago, my mom & I stopped by our local goodwill & we found this mirror for $6.00!!
I have been looking for a mirror about this size to go above my armoire in my bedroom for some time now and although this mirror wasn't the right color, it was definitely the right size & I liked the shape!
Here is what it looked like before...
I took a brown paper bag & cut it to fit inside the mirror & then tape the edges off securely so that the paint wouldn't leak onto the mirror...
I bought some Ivory colored spray paint at Walmart for about $4.00...
And I spray painted the CRAP out of this thing...
Seriously, I must have done at least 10 coats!!!
But you have to admit....it does look much better!!
I wanted to hang the mirror with ribbon, so I bought some ivory colored ribbon at Hobby Lobby for $2.50 (on sale.) I cut the ribbon to the size I needed & then hot glued it to the back of the mirror.
This mirror is pretty light weight ( the frame is actually made of plastic), so the hot glue was sufficient to hang it. If you have a heavier mirror, you may want to look at a different option! Just to be sure, I used A LOT of hot glue!! I wanted to make sure it was secure & that it wouldn't fall off the wall once hung!
And this is what it looks like hanging above my armoire in the bedroom!
I am super happy with how it turned out! It added the perfect touch to my display...
Note: the mirror is hanging by one single piece of ribbon & then
the bow was added last...again, I used hot glue to attach it!
Do you have any quick & easy transformations that you have done with spray paint?
I would LOVE to hear about them!!!
