Goodwill Mantle Mirror Makeover


Good Morning my Beauties, or at least I hope so.
For those of you that follow on Facebook, I know I said I wasn't going to do a post
because of my migraine, but I didn't want to disappoint...
Plus we are suppose to have some Ice Storm so I thought I better do this in
case we loose power or something and the kids are home.......AGAIN...:)

I thought I would quick show you this Mirror I had gotten at Goodwill.
I loved the shape of it and am sure it came off a dresser or vanity.
I was not in love with the dark stain though. Normally I like the richness of it...but it wasn't a
pretty wood or grain and I have an Oak mantle. I didn't like how it looked together.
So I just grabbed some of my Vintage White Ce Ce Caldwells paint and slapped on a couple coats.

Making sure to not be too careful, since I wanted it look like it had been painted and repainted and scuffed and old...:)

When it was done, I used a green scrub sponge and scuffed it up some more...then I waxed it..

and VOILA...I love it....It looks perfect on my mantle now and am loving it painted...
See short and simple...
I hope you enjoyed this little post and hopefully tomorrow I will be
as good as new.
Have a BEAUTIFUL day!!!!
