I picked this up at a garage sale for $8, Hated the color but thought it had potential.
I thought I was going to have to tape off the mirrors to give it a new color, BUT I started looking at the screws on the backside...
So I got everything set up outside and placed the mirrors carefully to the side.
I sanded some (to help the paint adhere) A little tedious but worth the effort.
I painted it all white (it was 70degrees and dried fast so I did one heavy layer of paint).
I got done and wasn't crazy about how it looked so I decided to try the shabby chic look. The only stain I could find around the house was too 'red' so I got out a pint of black paint and a cup of water and experamented. I applied the paint with t-shirt scraps and used a wet t-shirt scrap to wipe it off. And this is what I got...
I'm very new to this blogging craft world but not new to crafting at all! Growing up my mom would do craft shows and I LOVED making my own crafts, helping her with hers, and going to craft shows every weekend.
I 23 and living in the great state of Texas! I craft, bake, cook, and take pictures in my spare time and can't wait to share creations with other people.
