Mirror Makeover

This was a mirror that came with a $45 yard sale dresser.  It’s just been propped up everywhere waiting for me to decide where to use it.  I guess you could say that it was free, or at least that’s what I’m saying because it came with a huge dresser (yes $45 for both)!

I decided to paint it black, I used newspaper to shield the mirror:

Took it outside and started spraying:

I added some Precious Metals Titanium for a little glitz (I love this stuff!)

I dry brushed it on, to make it look worn.  The mirror looks old, so I thought this would add an aged effect.

It’s hanging in the entryway.

I like the shimmer of the titanium.


I wish I could get a good picture of the mirror, the silver is coming off in spots.  I love the way it looks.

I’m happy with the updated version.

These pictures were taken before I waxed the dresser.  Here’s what the area looks like now:

  4. I love it! Very pretty update!

  5. Looks great with the other piece you painted. Very elegant.

  6. Beautiful! I love that you turned it on its end. Shows how high your ceilings are.

  7. it is a lovely mirror, it looks very pretty with the black and silver paint treatment. Is that the dresser it came with that it is hanging over?

  8. Hi Debbie,

    What a beautiful entry into your home, the dresser is so pretty and all of that extra storage…
    The mirror is in the perfect spot, a quick look before you dash out the door!! Love it together!
    Have a great day!!
    All the Best,
    Christine

  9. It was free, absolutely free. My reasoning exactly =) Which makes it even ten X’s better. Looks gorgeous. The black was a wonderful choice and then you really added another layer with the burnishing.

    I have to say though, that dresser is s-t-u-n-n-i-n-g. My jaw dropped a little. I scored a sweet French legged side table, and I thought; “Hmm… I wonder if I could do that”? It looks pretty involved… I am off to see if you have a post on it!

  10. Mirror, mirror on the wall, you are looking fabulous!

  11. Seriously, when are you coming to my condo to decorate? HA, Looks fantastic!

  12. Turned out beautiful. I love it and especially over that table. Awesome job!
