Spray Paint Link Up

I'm linking up to TDC's link party!

The link is all things Spray Paint.  I've long been wanting to change up our fireplace mantle (including a paint change), and when I heard about the link party, it got my behind in gear :>)  Sometimes we need a little push.

These are the only "Before" pictures I have for the mirror:

And clearly they are taken with my "Before" camera and my "Before" camera lighting knowledge.

Yeesh. I apologize!

After being inspired by numerous gilded mirrors:

I decided I had to have one of my own.  But instead of running out (or googling away) and buying a new mirror, I thought I 'd give our old one a try - and use metallic gold spray paint.  I figured I'd at least get a feel of what the gold would bring to the room - before I made a new purchase.

I think I'm lovin' it!  




  1. Love the gold mirror, good work! Just stumbled over here from Thrifty Decor Chick!

  2. OMG I LOVE it!!! The white mantle/gold mirror combo is gorgeous! That gold is such a nice color too, not brassy but looks more subtle. Great job :)

  3. Can I find out the actual brand and color you used? Fantastic!
