Thrift Store Mirror Revamp

10/16/2010


While at my local thrift store, I found a $10 mirror with a unique top detail. I added some heirloom white spray paint, sanded the edges and rubbed on some mocha glaze to give it that old distressed look. This is an easy way to brighten up outdated, dark wood or faux wood pieces.

  2. Oh, I forgot to ask you... where do you get the glaze to give it that antique look, and what's the name of it? Thanks! That will help.
