Brand new mirror!

Okay here is the before again:



And here is the after!



A tip that I learned this time around:
Put some cardboard down underneath whatever you are painting! You are probably thinking "Duh!"but last time I just set stuff down on plastic, and then whatever you are painting sticks to it, and when you pick it up, some of the plastic sticks to it! It is very annoying, but easily solved by simply putting cardboard down.

Here is the paint I used:



Two coats of Valspar Porcelain Satin and then one coat of Rustoleum Almond Satin. The reason I did that is because I happened to have a lot of the Valspar spray paint, but I really like the Rustoleum color better (more of a cream), so I put that on for the final coat.



I love it!
