I have a really quick makeover for you guys. As you already know I love me some Craigslist, thrift stores, and yard sales. Let’s face it, I ain’t paying full price for nothing! Now the downside of me shopping at those places is that the pieces normally require some type of TLC. I have sooooo many projects that I need to get to. This one, however, was really really easy and quick! It didn’t require any sanding (hence the reason I haven’t painted my other pieces). This redo consisted of me only buying 2 cans of spray paint! I love a fast makeover.
I started with this bamboo mirror that I found for $3 at a yard sale. Originally, it was $5, but I asked if I could get it for $3 since the mirror was broken. Initially, I planned on getting another mirror for it, but after painting it and styling it, I opted not to. I kinda like it like this. I have way too many mirrors anyway.
1. I removed the mirror & threw it out (I could have saved it for some type of mosaic project, but that’s not really my style)
2. I used vinegar and water to wipe down the entire piece
3. I then used a white primer by Rust-Oleum to prep the piece for paint
4. Apply a spray paint color of your choice. I opted for Rust-Oleum Gloss Protective Enamel in Sail Blue (1 coat)
So what do you think? Are you working on any quick makeovers? Let me know!
