gold to glazed

i've been mulling over ideas in my head,  for. many. months.
about what to hang on our breakfast room wall.
i found the perfect pieces at a fabulous thrift store in downtown.

check out our fabulous finds from the weekend!

 those will be perfect for our breakfast room wall!

mirror: $30
plates: $2.50/ea

the gold on that mirror just wasn't working for me,
 so i decided to try my hand at glazing.

let's begin.

spray paint the mirror white

buy a pint of ralph lauren faux glaze at home depot.
tint with your chosen RL paint color.
i chose to tint with desert boot.

using a paint brush, glaze your desired area.
for best results, glaze an area with texture/design so the glaze will nicely accentuate it

wipe off the excess glaze with a damp rag

don't panic if you're not crazy about it halfway through,
the finished product will rock.

repeat steps 3 & 4 around the entire mirror,
step back and enjoy your new masterpiece.

sweetly ask hubby to hang it on your breakfast room wall.
love it.
