I found this mirror at a local thrift store for $3.
I covered the mirror with some junk mail to prepare it for painting.
It was badly in need of a makeover.
Brown is so not its best color.
The original finish didn’t even try to look like wood like some similar mirrors I’ve seen. The brown finish was chipping off in a few places.
Ah, much better.
What a fresh coat of paint can do is amazing.
I used glaze to give it a bit of texture and bring out the details.
Since this was a quick paint job to get pictures I missed that I didn’t get the whole railing back painted but that should be a quick and easy fix. Or I might just put a small plant or something to cover up the not so perfect paint job.
For $3, paint and a bit of glaze I’m happy.
