I got to meet some wonderful people the beginning of September. My husband met them on his LDS mission. They are the coolest and now my best friends! While they were staying with us, we went to a thrift-like store. It is a store full of new distressed furniture, estate sale furniture, and lots of other junk. The prices are usually high, but every once in a while, you can find something for a good deal. Well, I saw this mirror for $10, but walked right on by. I didn't see the potential, but thank goodness, our friend did.
I decided to paint it white. I first primed it with Krylon's primer and then painted it in white (Krylon Satin White). I won't bore you with a step-by-step, since it's pretty obvious. After lots of coats, I distressed it with an electric sander. I sprayed a couple of clear protective coats to seal it.
Here she is in all her beauty:
I realize this isn't the best picture, but I was sewing and the living room was a mess! Also, I was still in my pjs. I will try to get a better picture today! Here's some details. I absolutely love the top design!
