Hi friends, happy Thursday!  Today’s post is about a simple mirror makeover to show you how much of a difference just a change of color can make.  I usually like to add a stencil or special paint technique to my pieces to make them memorable, but sometimes the detail is already stunning and all it needs is a new paint color.  I’m also sharing six of my friends’ white makeovers to give you more inspiration – but if you want to pin any of their pieces, please click over to their blog first.

I bought this mirror at a yard sale last fall – it looks like wood but it’s really a thick plastic.  My mother says it’s vintage Home Interiors.

I thought it would look better with some Old White Chalk Paint® and clear wax by Annie Sloan.

Doesn’t it look so much better in white?  I love the scrolls and other details!

Here are a few other classic white projects from my friends:

1.  Artsy Chicks Rule painted this chair in a mix of two shades of white Chalk Paint®:

2.  Petticoat Junktion gave this wicker-style chest a bright white makeover:

3.  Confessions of a Serial Do-It-Yourselfer painted this cabinet white and added some chicken wire for a unique touch:

4.  This white desk looks so much better after its makeover by Petticoat Junktion.

5.  Inspiration for Moms whitewashed the new plank wall in her son’s bedroom and shares the tutorial HERE.

6.  This lantern got a new coastal look from Artsy Chicks Rule with white spray paint.

Are you a fan of white?

Remember, even a simple makeover can make a big impact in your decor!

    I am enjoying seeing your projects. I love the mirror in white. I wondered how it would look slightly tinting some of the decoration?

    LOVE the white everything. Totally inspired for some lovely shabby beachy décor for the summer. Thanks all!

    Wow, does your mirror ever look good after a fresh coat of old white – you’d never know it was plastic and it just brings out all the details so nicely. Love all the white projects you featured here too.
