I found it at a thrift store for $2 and I snapped it up. It’s just one of those typical gold plastic mirrors that I’ve seen many times in the past, and I just walked on by. Not this time. I knew exactly what I was going to do with it the second I bought it. OK… not the second, but pretty close to it. Here’s what it looked like when I brought it home.
I cleaned it up and covered the mirror with paper, with the help of some painter’s tape, to protect it while I spray painted it.
Here it is with a coat of Tremclad spray primer.
Here it is with 2 coats of Krylon Watermelon spray paint. I love this colour. It’s s-o-o-o delicious! When I finished spray painting I really liked it, but I thought it was missing that extra somethin’, somethin’.
I dug into my Christmas decorations and found some faux pearl garland and glued that to the inside of the mirror with my glue gun. I used my glue gun because I wanted it to be easily removable in the future.
Here are some close ups.
So you don’t have to scroll up, here’s the before again.
And here’s the after.
