As y’all know by now, I LOVE repurposing things. I bought a dresser some time ago and the mirror on it was broken. So, after looking at it a while, I decided what I was going to do.
I just so happen to have a window I needed to frame. Actually, I had two windows I needed to frame. I chose my kitchen window first but, I usually have flowers in the window and there is a window box on the outside of it so, I figured that was enough for that window and I opted for plain trim and chose to move the dresser mirror frame to my laundry room. Did I mention I just painted my laundry room
AGAIN!!! I have had THE hardest time finding the color I wanted but, I FINALLY did. It’s Valspar and the name eludes me right now (imagine that) but, if I can find my color card, I will update this. It’s in the teal family, I can tell you that.
I chose to paint the dresser mirror frame white and it looks so pretty against the wall color.
Keep in mind when you look at these photos, I am NOT a fancy girl & my home is no magazine. I was going to be kind enough to move my rusty storage basket but, I forgot so, you get the mess and all lol.
This is the dresser mirror when I got it.
Here it is, in the laundry room, after I painted and lightly glazed it using Old Town Paints.
I love the details on the frame.
If you wanna try this, all you need is an old mirror, with a frame large enough to fit your window, a paint brush, I love Purdy Paint Brushes best. Paint. glaze and sealer of any kind but, I used Old Town Paints. This fram was a bit long so I used a small Skil Circular Saw, which is good fo small projects. I used Elmers Wood Glue, to glue the bottom half back to the fram, where I trimmed it & filled in the cracks with Elmer’s Wood Filler and lightly sanded, before I panted it.
I hope this inspires you to repurpose something in your own home.
