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:

    1. 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!
