Mirror Restoration

It had potential and that’s why I bought it….and because I’m a sucker for a good “before and after”.

The sticker said, “$15 Firm”, but the man at the thrift store gave it to me for $10. (I’m also a sucker for a good deal!)

After Buddy and I walked into the store and I swore I was “just going to look“, we walked out with a giant, gold, plastic-framed mirror that screamed 1992.

“I promise, this is going to look like it’s straight from Pottery Barn when I’m done with it!”

One afternoon, I gathered the necessary tools from my craft stash and got to work. So without further ado, here’s my lovely Pottery Barn-esque mirror that is now proudly perched on our mantel. Enjoy…

Let me start with my inspiration piece from Pottery Barn…Yes, it’s actually hand-carved wood, BUT it’s also $589 more than my find!

My thrift store find (Before):

First coat of paint, I didn’t realize how many nooks and crannies there were…

Drum roll pleaseeeee…. The AFTER

Happy Monday!
