Another thrift store find that was hanging out in my garage was a sunburst mirror that I found for $3. Now it definitely needed some imagination, but I was willing to give it a try. It was just a plastic framed mirror with 80's-ish southweastern coloring. Pretty hideous. But I saw potential.
I used the same antique-gold painting technique that I used for the large mirror in my previous post, and it gave it new life!
Here is my mirror after! Of course it is a far cry from the one in the picture, but for $3 and for a similar effect, it was hard to pass up! I would like to have several of these eventually including one in my bedroom, but for now, this one is hanging out in the formal living room.
