I found this 80's plastic framed mirror at the thrift store Saturday. I loved its detail and could just picture it repainted and hanging on my foyer wall. So I paid the $4.99 minus the 15% discount and happily carted it away. I stopped by Wal Mart on my way home for some Krylon Ivory spray paint..
After taping up the mirror real well (or so I thought), I gave her two coats of paint and let it dry for several hours. Overnight would be even better.
Then I used what must be the best kept secret of do-it-yourselfers, Rub 'n Buff. I bought it at Hobby Lobby. I love the rich looking results I get and it is so easy to use! You just rub it on with your finger and then buff it with a soft cloth. The more you buff it, the shinier it will be. I used it on this mirror makeover too.
