Last week, I did my first sweet paint job! A long time ago, my roommate/best friend bought a cheap $5 full length mirror from Target. Her boyfriend, bored one day, decided to throw some extra wood on there and create a frame. When they moved to Utah, she left the mirror with me. I've been meaning to paint it.. and finally, I did! First, I painted it white. Two layers, actually.
After that was mostly dry, I went over it with some blue paint. I used the same brush, and just let it all sort of mesh together if it needed to. I let the blue dry completely. Once that was done, I sanded the frame. You can sand it as much or as little as you want to. It'll turn out great regardless! I probably could have sanded mine more than I did... but I was impatient :) I forgot to take a picture of that step though.. Once I was done sanding, I swept all of the dusties off.. Then, I covered it all with a stain.
I left the stain on for about 10 minutes, then I took an old t-shirt of my hub's, and wiped it all off. And.... Voila!
A Beautiful, "weathered" looking paint job. I personally love it. The pictures didn't turn out great.. I'll try better next time :) But this was a fun job, and I love the way that it turned out.
