My garage is currently filled with several partially completed “big” furniture projects. Big = many of them have broken or damaged parts and need extra time and TLC to make them functional and pretty again. I work on them a little each day but sometimes I’ll take a break and try to get a quick project done in the meantime.
You’ve probably seen mirrors like these many times at Goodwill and passed them over without too much of a second glance. The bright gold frame doesn’t exactly scream “current and stylish decor.”
So I used black paint to give it a more modern vibe, but I left some of the gold peeking through to give it a hint of an aged appearance. Modern/aged – makes perfect sense together, right? 😉 It may sound strange but I think it turned out pretty well.
I think it looks great with my upcycled crate table.
Even a quick makeover can make a huge impact on your home decor!
And maybe the next time you see one of these mirrors at Goodwill, you’ll imagine the possibilities…
