Mirror Re-Vamp

I can't believe it is almost spring. The snow is starting to melt, and I hope people start spring cleaning soon! I picked up a mirror at a thrift shop, I can't believe that i missed a before picture. It appeared to have multiple coats of gloss paint, with the last color chocolate brown. It really was a drab mirror. I loved the detail of the corners, gave me a CoUnTrY ChIc look.
The next piece was your typical 80's end table....

Please excuse the poor pic. Here she is all shiny and new!

I used a latex enamel paint, I now started adding Plaster of Paris to convert it to chalk paint. I like the texture and application as opposed to no plaster. Gave it a light sand and another coat. I love using RL glaze in the crevices, then a coat of Varathane. I'm not a big fan of brass hard ware with this tone. So, I sprayed them with ORB {oil rubbed bronze} spray paint. Hope you like!


  1. Just beautiful - that mirror is one gorgeous mirror!!!

  2. Thank you Suzan, I loved the bench you posted the other day. Watch for one soon, by me : )

  3. I love the mirror. The color is one of my very favorites...I did my tv stand in it.

    Thanks for sharing!!!

  4. Great job on both pieces! I bought that exact same end table at the Sally Ann last week, for $10.00. Still haven't started working on it.
    Saw you linking at Life on Lakeshore Drive.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on anything I post. It's kinda like going to the post office, I giggle like a school girl when I receive a new comment.
