Garage Sale Score: Before / After

So I went garage sale-ing on the weekend... haven't been in a while and to be honest it wasn't as exhilarating as it can be. Anyway I managed to find a few things, including this gold mirror....

Yes i managed to see potential and decided it might be a quick DIY challenge. Heres what I did:
First I took it apart, screwing the back off and taking out the mirror.

 Then I gave it 2 coats of white pant (using a finer paintbrush for the final coat)

And thats it - easy! Put it all back together...

.... e finito!


  1. i've been using a lot of white paint lately on things too. i love it. good score!

  2. It looks fantastic Holly! And looks great in your sewing room!

  3. Love it! I did one a couple of months back, but red...
    Love the white look :)
