The Tale of a Mirror

So I'm kind of obsessed with blog stalking some fabulous DIYers. I love to see them take thrift store finds and make them into beautiful pieces of furniture. I saw this post on Centsational Girl and immediately went on the hunt for Rustoleum "Night Tide."

Kate's fantastic piece

Thankfully, some Wal-Marts carry it and after googling it - we finally located a Wal-Mart near us that had it in stock. I just had to have it some place in my home. I'm really wanting to spruce up our master bedroom so I figured that would be the best place to start. I had a mirror sitting on my night stand that Lee had before we got married. It matches all the wood in our house but I'm kind of over the Tommy Bahama matchy matchy look....so....I decided to paint the mirror and see how it turned out...

Here's the mirror before - not too shabby. It's sitting on a 20.00 desk I use as my night stand.

After taping it off and priming

And the end result. I love the blue color and once the desk gets transformed - I think it will be the perfect combination. I'm thinking the desk will look fantastic with the same dark stained top and heirloom white legs and drawers. Hmmmm......

I followed Kate's step by step directions and while it does have a few brush strokes from the poly - you can't really notice them unless you are right up next to it. I dinged it while I was bringing it in from outside so I do have one little touch up to do - but other than that - it didn't turn out too bad. Kind of a fun project!
