It’s thrift store decor day and I’m sharing how to transform a large gold mirror into something a little more updated using Chalky Paint. This mirror belongs to one of my best friends who is the middle of updating their home. She purchased this at a second-hand store a few years back and was ready to give it new life.

Mix equal parts of the Black and Gray Chalky Paint
Paint your piece with 2 coats of the mixed paint using an angle brush, allowing it to dry in between coats. For the detail parts of the mirror, I used a small craft brush to really get in-between all of the grooves.
Seal using a good polyurethane or wax.
A pretty simple makeover that gave this mirror a much-needed update!
It is so hard to take a picture of a mirror without being in the picture, if you look close you will see Abby under the table, she refused to move.
Time to see what everyone else made over for this month’s thrift store challenge!
