It’s true I have turquoise mirror obsession and after the success of my last mirror makeover I wanted to more closely match this inspiration mirror I found (pictured below) while browsing pinterest a while back and have been obsessing about ever since. It was so easy I now have to stop myself from buying every mirror I see and spray painting it.
Inspiration Mirror source Knight Moves: Stella Dallas via pinterest
I began my search on eBay for Syroco style mirrors I settled on this mirror for it’s similar shape and details and I thought it would be a good makeover candidate as some of the gold finish was chipping.
I first removed the mirror and backing then primed the entire thing using an all purpose spray primer I had on hand. Once dry, the entire mirror received 2 coats of Valspar’s Exotic Sea Gloss and was set out to dry over night.
The next day I glazed the entire piece with Valspar’s Metal and Patina Glaze. I worked in smallish sections; glazing and wiping with paper towelsonly allowing the glaze a couple minutes to set.
And viola easy peasy lemon squeezy turquoise mirror makeover.
