Quick and Simple DIY Project

Hello everyone. When we moved over to Austraila we brought some items of furniture over with us, now the plan was to make the furniture work until we found a better replacement, however the furniture is in good shape it just needs a little TLC. So I have huge plans for the girls play room that I will slowly be doing over time. For now I am just starting on the smaller pieces like photo/ mirror frames. Its super easy and you can do it too. Here is how!

So this was a Mirror that we have had for about 7 years now and it has seen a lot of houses, so it only felt right to bring it with us when we moved. Now I knew I wanted the mirror in the entrance hall, as it is such a big space I felt it would work really well there and it does, I just love it.

How to get the look

  1. Take the frame and remove the glass or picture to avoid any damage ( I was unable to remove the glass on mine as it was a bit stiff lol and I didn’t want to shatter the glass)
  2. If you are unable to remove like me then use tape and newspaper to cover the area.
  3. Sand all over until smooth. I just used a light grain piece of sand paper as the mirror was pretty smooth to start with.
  4. Use a spray paint with added Primer (it saves a lot of time) I use a brand called British B Paints and its called Spray Easy Paint & Prime.
  5. Apply one coat of paint and leave to dry. Recoat after 1 hour or leave for 24hours before re applying the second coat.
  6. Display your work for everyone to see!

I would love to see your creations.

Thank you for reading.

Love Rachel Xx
