Paint it White: Mirror Makeover and 6 Other White Projects

Paint it White: Mirror Makeover and 6 Other White Projects

Mirror Makeover with Chalk Paint® and 6 other white painted projects!  Girl in the Garage for Live Creatively Inspired.

Hi friends, today I’m sharing a simple mirror makeover to show you how much of a difference a coat of paint can make.  (Okay, maybe 2 coats of paint.)  Usually I like to add a stencil or special paint technique to my pieces to make them memorable, but sometimes the detail is already stunning and all you need is a new paint color.

I bought this mirror at a yard sale last fall – it looks like wood but it’s really a thick plastic.  My mother says it’s vintage Home Interiors.

I thought it would look better with some Old White Chalk Paint® and clear wax by Annie Sloan.

Doesn’t it look so much better in white?  I love the scrolls and other details!

  1. Your mirror looks so light and cottagey now! So pretty!

  2. I have been wanting to try chalk paint for along time. Just wondering. How did you apply the wax? With a brush or rag? I never worked with wax before. The mirror is beautiful. I love anything white!!!!!
