Little Vintage Mirror Re-do

This one is pretty self explanatory. For a while now, I've had a little vintage mirror. The same one that used to hang in my grandparents bedroom, but it has been in need of a bit of work.

Today I decided it was time. I was the crazy lady outside spray painting in my pajamas before the kids woke up.

I enlisted 2 of my favorite makeover tools...

Sprayed and then went to work with the "Purdy" brush. See how easy antiquing is? Just wiped off the extra glaze with a wet cloth.

And after drying in the morning sun for a 1/2 hour, it was ready to hang.

Oh, I just love it! You painted it the same color I painted my clock - my favorite Colonial Red! Can I ask where you got yours because the last time I check at Lowes for it a few months back, they didn't have it/carry it.

Great job!

It looks great! And I love the room that you hung it in!

Thanks for letting me know about the paint! That's problem I'm having, too with that paint...I used it for a lot of projects and would love to use it for more. I *have* found it online, though, oddly enough. I'll have to find the link for you.

Love the red! I'll have to try that glaze--never done it before! Great idea--as always!

Love quick projects! It's hard not to baste everthing with the secret sauce! Mirror: Nice re-do.
