Ok, have you ever finished a decorating project & then looked back at it and tried to convince yourself that you loved it? That was me last week with this project here. Probably because I spent the $ for the Ralph Lauren paint. It just wasn't metallic enough for me & I don't like the brown with the wall color.
I was busy painting the kitchen doors but started thinking about the gorgeous coppery brown mirror. I had some leftover silver spray paint from my door knobs project. I took a paper plate & sprayed it & taped it to the mirror to see if I might like that on the mirror.

The paint guy asked me a simple question: 'Did you prime the mirror first?'. Hmm, let me think about that for a sec, uh no priming going on. Duh! So, I sheepishly went home & primed the mirror here:
And then re-painted it AGAIN with the Ralph Lauren Lush Brown metalic paint. Still didn't like the brown mirror against the wall color. So, after a little silver spray paint, here is the (final) finished product!
