How to: Transform an old mirror

Hey everyone! Today I want to share how to take an old dusty mirror and make it look newer and modern for under $10! Enjoy!

1. So first off find in old mirror laying around your house
2. Clean the mirror well (this will help the spray paint stay on better)
3.Tape and cover the whole mirror with painters tape and newspaper/white paper

*My mom gave me this one and it was just sitting in my closet and I decided to make it more attractive rather than buying a new mirror

5. Choose any color spray paint you would like and spray 1 coat
6. Let the first coat dry  and spray 1 more coat
7. When your mirror is completely dry, remove the tape and paper

*I used Rust-Oleum Multicolor Textured Spray in the color Aged Iron
*I chose it because the spray paint is textured and gave it a really nice effect
*These cost around $5 at Wal- Mart

8. Hang on a wall, if you'd like put some mirror stickers around your mirror like I have done in the picture above

*I got those stickers at Garden Ridge for $10


  1. Very pretty. I like the new colour you choose.
