Nothing makes my heart pitter patter more then when I see an antique mirror. I have a thing for mirrors. I’m always buying them and then I run out of wall space.
Quite frankly, I’m obsessed with light fixtures and mirrors.
But my plan is always to antique every one of them. Who needs a mirror to look into anyway? They just look more interesting antiqued.
I recently antiqued a mirror which I was quite proud of but before I tried it I checked out many tutorials.
So now you can check out different ways and techniques to antique your own mirror!
Here are three gorgeous eye candy images to get the creativity juices flowing.
Love this one from White Living.
This one via Greige is stunning!
Would love a wall like this wall from Country Living.
Now you have to check out these tutorials.
This is an old tutorial of mine. I used Amy Howard’s products which I was very happy with.

Decor Adventures used bleach and paint stripper to antique this lovely mirror.
HGTV used muriatic acid to get this beautiful look.
Twigg Studios used limescale and old paper for this stunner.

Dans le Lakehouse used muriatic acid as well. Gorgeous!
Home Heart Craft used Krylon Looking Glass spray paint. Such a neat effect.
Savvy City Farmer used muriatic acid as well for this look. Love the large cracks.

I recently did another post on Antiquing a Mirror.

Fabulous job, ladies!
