Matchy Mirrors

Quite a while ago, I stumbled upon two mirrors on clearance at Winners. At first, I didn't know what to do with them. I loved the shape and the price.

But they were different finishes. Neither of which I was fond of. 

So what's a girl to do? 

Spraypaint!! Yessiree! And did I ever have a good time spray painting these beauties. Sure, a rogue bug or blade of grass found its way into almost every sticky coat of high gloss white pray paint I applied. Nothing a little sanding and repainting couldn't fix though :)

I'm super happy with the end result. The high gloss white looks great against the wall. I love how a new coat of paint has done wonders for the original frame and bones these mirrors always had. I mean before, I could hardly tell they had such delightfully sculpted edges. Now, thanks to the glossy white, those edges are on full display!

Currently, the mirrors are situated above one of the love seats in our living area downstairs. They reflect the kitchen beautifully and definitely make the whole room feel bigger.

Overall, I'm thrilled with the way things turned out. Lesson learned? Spray paint is awesome. Always has been, always will be. 

I have a feeling spray paint and I are going to have a long, healthy and very pretty future together.
