Mirror paint project

I love the size of this mirror but the boring, bland pickled finish needs to go.

I found this pic from one of my favorite blogs, Boulevard Interior Design, and thought I could paint my mirror to have that coppery-bronzy metal finish.

If you haven't checked out that blog, you should. Kristin has some awesome before & after pics as well as great design advice. On some Fridays, she posts 'Free Advice Friday'.

A quick trip to my local Home Depot to pick up just a quart of Ralph Lauren metallics paint in Lush Brown and a small roller brush!

Getting all set up to start painting:

I am happy with the result! As a side note, Home Depot is discontinuing Ralph Lauren paint in the near future according to my sales rep.

I am linking up to Metamorphis Monday!

  1. Looks great! I am totally bummed about the discontinuing of RL paint. My store has Martha everywhere. Although, I have to admit, I do like her paint swatch selection.

  2. NG- I love what you did to the mirror! So you know, Lowes will also mix RL paint in any of their selections of paint!

  4. Wow! What a transformation... it really pops on your wall now!
