I used to have one of these mirrors in the 80s I think….I have always liked the real wicker, but wasn’t sure what to do with it to update. I found this one in great shape for $6 and brought it home with me. In the past I had one painted white, but wanted something with more color.
I had my staff take a look at it…
They really didn’t have much to say about the project, so I took it upon myself to go to my stash of paint. I used one of the colors I got from my $75 Lowe’s gift card shopping spree—Exotic Sea Gloss!
I took the mirror apart and replaced the cardboard back with a pressboard scrap I had in the garage (after I painted the wicker of course!).
Spray painted it with the Valspar Spray Paint with Primer. It goes on smoothly and evenly and gives a perfect finish…
My assistant is pleased I think…actually he always looks like that so I don’t know what’s up with him.
Here’s the wall while I am still working on it…had to get it tweaked just right. Eventually I hung a big starfish in the collection and I am pleased with that!
I may be linking up to some of these great parties!
