Updating an old gold mirror Adult dating in loris south caroli
In fact, when I’m shopping for a new mirror, I really don’t care what the finish is because I know that I can easily change it and make it the exact color and finish that I want with spray paint.
Here is mirror revamp that we also did for Studio 319 with this fabulous quatrefoil mirror: Of course this is a fabulous mirror in black but I really wanted a white mirror for the bathroom, so I just spray painted it.
If you want more paint on the frame just do it again but still keep the paint light to avoid getting paint beyond the top texture.
It doesn’t bother me if I miss and some paint gets down into the other parts of the frame but if it bothers you, keep a couple wet q-tips near to wipe away.
If you make a larger mistake, just wipe the frame with a warm, wet washcloth and let it dry and start over.
I also like to spray paint mirrors to update them or change the colors.
Rustoleum makes a high gloss white lacquer spray paint that I knew would be perfect.
White-tinted clear wax, MMS White Wax, or even a homemade paint wash (white paint mixed with water) and sealed with wax would also do the trick.By the way, the quatrefoil mirror above is made by Allen Roth and is sold at Lowe’s (sale .00). Well that’s it for now, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!I’m going to go and pick up another one for my daughter’s bedroom and spray it a bold pink. I have several fun projects coming up next week, so be sure and check back. I distressed the paint with a damp cloth to bring out off of the gold underneath the paint.I recommend distressing with the damp cloth because sandpaper will sand past the gold through to the wood underneath if you're not careful.
