Bamboo Mirror Makeover

Bamboo Mirror Before & After 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)

5. Wait for it to dry and hang! How easy! I didn’t hang mine though. I liked the way it looked just leaning on the wall

    LOVE THIS!!! You could also use a piece of cork to make a cute little place to post outfit ideas and inspirations.

      Thank you! I could do that. There are sooo many options for an empty frame. I was also thinking about putting a thin piece of wood, or some type of material in it and painting it with chalkpaint. I’m still undecided though. I just don’t want it to look too cluttered because a gallery wall will be going up right next to it.

    Prissy you are a genius! What was your inspiration for selecting that shade of blue to paint the bamboo?

      Awww thank you so much! I knew I wanted some type of color. Originally, I wanted a fuchsia color, but couldn’t find it in Lowes. I didn’t feel like going to another store, so I actually settled with this blue color. I do really, really like it though. I think it was a better choice than the fuchsia.
