Hand-Me-Down Mirror Makeover
The former owners of my house left me this lovely (ugh) mirror.
And this lovely eye sore above my mantle to go with it. I swear these people were the laziest homeowners ever!
I taped off the mirror, primed it (shown below) and painted it "Ivory Brown" - a left over Valspar sample I had from another project .
I followed that up with two coats of a craft paint in a metallic finish called "Champagne" that I picked up on sale for 75 cents. Voila - a glamorous mirror for my glamorous guest bedroom! Best 75 cents I've ever spent.
