Updated Fireplace Mirror

Around the holidays I received a gift card to Kirklands so after the craziness was over I went shopping! What I needed most was a new mirror for above our fireplace.

I browsed online before heading to the store and found the Victoria Mirror and fell in love. I knew it would be just perfect for above the fireplace. It was even more beautiful in person! It almost came home with me till...

I went over by the Clearance section and found this mirror. It was normally $149.99 and I got it for just $29.99. How could I resist!? At that point I decided to spend my gift card on something entirely different which I will share in an upcoming post.

The mirror was marked down due to being damaged but I knew I could make it beautiful once again.

The finish was chipping off something awful but for me that was a major plus. I busted out my chalk based paints and got busy making it over. I made sure to chip off all the loose pieces of finish before painting it.

All that chippiness worked in my favor!

Now this mirror has a time worn finish and fits right in with our home.

I think it turned out just perfect!

Not bad for $29.99 and a little sweat equity.

  1. I have been thinking of getting that mirror from Kirkland's, but hate to pay full price when I know I'll be painting it. You sure got a great deal! I'll have to check my store and see if they have any marked down. (fingers crossed)! I want to hang it above the fireplace too. I guess we'll be "twinsies" if I do. :)

    1. Cherita I fauxed our mantel four years ago. It was actually one of the first transformations in our living room that I did. I used Rainwashed by Shewrin Williams along with I think White Column maybe by Sherwin Williams. I would have to look that name up. Then I just blended the colors all in with some brown glaze. It is one of my most favorite things about our living room!
