I have an easy project today! No tools involved.
Last summer while I was out of town, my niece Missy stopped by to take care of things at my house, and noticed these mirrors at a nearby yard sale for $5 each. That’s Missy taking a picture of the mirrors so she can text me.
Earlier in the Summer I made a DIY hall tree using one of the mirrors, a $2 door and other bits and pieces. (this sold at Glendale)
This is how it looks up close.
That of course, left one of the mirrors free to do a makeover.
I distressed the white paint lightly with an emery board.
Then I used some dark patina and a cheap chip brush to antique the frame of the mirror.
This is what I used, Dark Antiquing Patina from Heirloom Traditions . (Use the code MYREPURPOSEDLIFE at checkout to save 10% on your purchase. I make a small commission and you save a little money.) It’s very easy to brush on and wipe off, being of a consistency similar of glue.
This is a picture of the mirror before I cleaned the glass. Because there was still some paint on the mirror, it was easier to take a picture.
This picture was taken from down below to reflect the clouds. It’s so difficult to take a picture of a mirror.
I added d-rings for hanging the mirror on the wall.
This mirror sold at Glendale 2015.
