Home decor projects are some of my favs. Even the simplest, quickest projects can completely transform a piece of furniture or a space.
So when my mom brought home a white clearance mirror from HomeGoods for $29.99 and ended up not using it herself, I knew it was due for a little upcycling. A nice gold framed mirror can easily cost you $100 plus dollars. A can of gold spray paint only costs $7.99 The cardinal rule for a project like this? Do it outside. Unless you want to pass out. I don’t want you to pass out so just take it to the back yard, porch, whatever you have.
I made sure I covered the glass in newspaper to protect it. To achieve the look I wanted, it took two coats. From previous spray painting projects, I knew that when the instructions say to spray in a parallel, sweeping motion… they mean that. If you don’t, you run the risk of ending up with a streaky result.
It only takes a couple minutes from the paint to dry and then you can move it inside to finish setting. I can’t wait to hang this mirror! But until my handyman comes, you all will just have to imagine how it’ll look positioned above my settee. And just like that, in a mere afternoon, I have a gorgeous gold mirror for less than $40! Gosh, I love DIY.
Spring has sprung so you know what that means…
it’s time to bring on the peep toes!
I get cold easily though so I’m still wearing mine with tights– isn’t that how all the cool kids wear them anyway??
I dunno how many of you have tried Vince Camuto heels but if you haven’t, you absolutely should. I have a few pairs and they are all crazy comfortable! Like ‘dance all night and not feel like you need to take off your shoes’ comfortable. Anywho, I love a monochromatic look so I paired them with navy tights and a full navy skirt I got long ago from Joe Fresh.
I’ll definitely be getting some good use out of these comfy cuties. I can see it already!
