DIY Project

I got a mirror from our local consignment shop a few months ago for just $3 with the intent of painting it for Abby's room.  I finally got around to doing it this past week when Matt was away.  It's amazing how much you can get done in the few hours you're waiting for the nurse after Abby goes to sleep!

The person who had this mirror before did a strange marbled effect to it. I wasn't too fond of it, so I painted over it.  This is what it looked like before I started.

Do you see the brown stuff?  It was sponged on, but it just looked dirty.

There were some gauges in it too.

Yeah, it was late.  Whatever!

I did a lot of sanding to smooth the rough spots and make everything even.  The sanding also took off some of the marbled stuff.

All the streaks on the mirror was from sanding dust.

3 coats of white paint later...

It looks great in her room!
