Mirror Spray Paint Revamp

Spray Paint Furniture

I have been obsessed with finding an ornate oval mirror since running into this post over at Tres Chere.  Angie and Debbie are so talent when it comes to interior decor.  I do not have that gift and I find it amazing the budget finds these two throw together so elegantly.  Here is the mirror that started my mission to score one for the bedroom I am redecorating.  Will you look at the lovely accessories?!  Oh dang.  I just became fixated on the chandelier.  New obsession.

After scavenging all the thrift stores and garage sales scaling three cities, I finally found this little jewel for $15!  I was just about to give up when I stopped at a small town flea market overflowing with well priced vintage goods.

I brought her home, took the mirror out of the frame.  Then I cleaned the empty frame  with soap and water.  Sprayed on a coat of primer, let that dry and spray painted the lovely yellow (Krylon Indoor/Outdoor “Bright Idea”) you see in the final piece.  Super fast, cheap, way cool.
