Mirror Technique


My bathroom is feeling so heavenly, with its new color last week and now gorgeous new mirrors.

I bought these mirror at Goodwill. I took out the mirror part and painted the frame white. I then attached the frame of the mirror to my bathroom mirror with silicone I used painters tape to hold it up while it dried for 24 hours. The person who inspired me to do this was my mother who did this in her bathroom, she had seen it on another blogger's page, who I believe she linked back too on her page.

 I had been wanting to do this mirror technique for a while, but I wanted two matching vintage mirror's and was waiting to find two, I figured it was going to take a while. Then the other day I purchased a vintage mirror at Goodwill as I regularly do because I am trying to collect a whole bunch, because I wanted to do a entire wall of vintage mirrors painted white.When I bought my mirror the other night I decided to look through my collection of mirrors I already had, that needed to be painted and what do I find..... I already have the mirror I just bought! I was so happy and excited that I had two matching.

Here is what the bathroom mirror looked like before not bad, just boring.

I am thrilled with how it turned out.

 I hung this crystal candle holding chandelier in the middle because there was alot of space in between the two mirror frames, and this just fits here perfect.

 The create the look around the edges of the full size mirror, I first hung a white sheer window scarf I layered long strands of pearls with it, and placed a feather boa across the top.

I love how glamorous and feminine it is.




Now I'm off to a bubble bath where I can sit and admire my mirrors new look.

  28. I love the way you adorned your restroom with these beautiful mirrors :) Question, when you purchased them were they gold? If you painted them yourself what did you use, a brush or spray paint? I too collect mirrors and long to paint them but I am a little nervous on how to go about it...Thanks, again I just love your blog, you and your mother's I think they are my all time faves...:)
