|Love what we've done with the place?|
...and a mirror that didn't go with the bedroom.
So instead of going to the store and blah, blah, blah, I did this:
Dutch Boy no-VOC flat latex paint in White
1" foam brush
an old piece of cardboard to catch drips
What I did:
Call this the lazy girl's way to re-paint something. It won't work for every project (if you're dealing with a glossy finish, for example) but for my cheap faux-wood mirror, skipping the sandpaper and primer was the way to go. I just applied three coats of paint with the foam brush. I allowed drying time between each layer, and used even strokes to avoid brush marks. That's it. Didn't even tape off the glass, though I kind of rolled the dice with that one. Feel free to do so if you're worried about having a steady hand.
Here's the finished product:
|Better accessories help, too.|
By the way, this project was free. Hooray for using stuff I already had!
