It’s back again! Trash to Treasure time (2nd Friday of the month). We missed last month because three out of four of us in this group went to Atlanta for the Haven Conference. We were sad that Shannon couldn’t go this year.
Okay my Trash to Treasure this month is how to take a ‘just okay’ mirror and make it fabulous by making it look antique.
I have been wanting to antique many mirrors of mine for awhile now. But I wanted a truly antique look, not a look that was just painted.
You roll the stripper (step 1) goop on the back of the mirror and the silver stuff lifts up in minutes.
You need to hose it off so its best to do this dirty job outside.
The tutorial on the website was awesome and it worked like a charm.
Once you apply the antiquing solution (step 2), you paint the back with black paint and you’re done.
I LOVE how it turned out!!
Yep, totally in love.
I now have a more current and thorough tutorial on How to Antique a Mirror.
Okay, now you’d better check out my co-hosts!
