I have an UNG DRILL mirror from Ikea that I love, but I never felt like the black color was really me. I pinned these as inspiration on Pinterest.
Mirror #1 is from the etsy store Back Porch Roots . I love that this mirror has almost the same lines as my UNG DRILL.
Mirror #2 is actually a DIY Project from www.ourlakelife.com/. She spray painted and glazed her mirror. I think it looks great!
Mirror #3 is from www.designmom.com/. This photo is from a post about her Kitchen Counters, and I couldn't find anywhere on her blog whether she purchased it or made it, but I think it's great!
I picked up some Valspar spray paint in Pacific Blue and got to work. I didn't prime the mirror because I wanted a more navy color.
First, I took out the mirror so that I was just spraying the frame portion. I laid it out on a plastic bag on the rocks outside of our apartment. The key to an even spray painting application is thin and even coats.
In order to get an even color with all of those nooks and cranies, I sprayed an thin and even coat from all directions. After about 2 coats in each direction (8 total) I got this.
I let it cure outside for 12 hours, so it wasn't sticky and didn't smell. Then I took it inside and took a photo on my bed, so it is in front of a white background. This photo is truest to the real color.
It turned out to be a really pretty navy, that in the sunlight looks like a Royal blue. I love it! We hung it, with the mirror inside, above our bed.
(I appologize greatly for the craptastic quality of these bottom two photos. The lighting was weird, and I had to use my crap camera, hence why it looks like you need to turn the lights on and put on your glasses.)
So what did you do for the Pinterest Challenge? Link it up here so I can check it out!!
