I had this dark wood mirror in my garage and it was seriously in need of a makeover. A bit boring and blah for me...nothin' a little paint couldn't fix. My little helper and I got right to work to fancy this bad-boy up!
I had a vision for this mirror, and my vision was stripes. BUT, I totally went about this the WRONG way and it was quite a frustrating project. For some reason, I figured I would just paint one color stripe first, wait for it to dry, and then paint the other color stripe. Umm. NO. Lesson learned. Next time, I will spray paint the whole thing the base color first, and then add the stripes after. DUH. (I painted the white stripes first with a brush, and then after 2 days of drying, I taped over them so I could spray the remaining stripes gold. Unfortunately, after I taped it off and sprayed the gold, my painters tape pulled up all the white paint I had already painted. BUMMER).
I carefully went back over the white with a brush, and touched up the areas that the tape pulled up. I think it turned out ok in the end. Thoughts??
This mirror now lives in no-man's land aka my bedroom, so not that many people will even see it. But, like anything in my home, I wanted it to be pretty!
