Transformation Tuesday! Mirror Mirror on the Wall...

Had this mirror for a while now... been sitting in the garage because I kind of forgot about it.

BEFORE: (well, kind of before... I forgot to take a picture until I had already started.)

And (drumroll...)  
AFTER:




Unfortunately, I already have a mirror in this particular spot that I am very fond of... soooo.. this one's up for grabs. Takers? Contact me by email by click the "share" link above.  I will post "SOLD" when it's gone!
(Note: SOLD! Sorry!)
Technique used for painting the mirror: Dry brush. Dab the paint brush into the paint very lightly and smudge excess paint off on something you don't mind getting paint on. The brush should feel pretty dry before you start painting.

Paint Color: Valspar's Aquatic Edge (which we actually decided to use in our master bathroom...haven't done it yet, but excited to see the results!)
