Master Bedroom Updates: Spray Painted and Glazed Mirror1:25:00 PM
Hi everyone! Sorry I've been MIA all week. Had my first exam in my Art History class this week and an assignment due for another class, so I had to buckle down and get 'em done!
I wanted to share with you a quick makeover/update in my "master" bedroom. My hubby and I recently decided to purchase a new comforter set. It's a really beautiful print: white background with a grey, brown and blue paisley print. We fell in love. But once I got it home I realized that it didn't really go well with my paint color, the mirror above my bed or the lampshades (that I had just recently purchased! Pictures show lampshades switched out already).
The mirror was originally a gold-toned.
I sprayed it with some Krylon brushed nickel spray paint. I may have mentioned before how I'm just not good at spray-painting! I over spray, make drips and almost always cause the paint to crackle--I can never get a nice smooth finish!
Because the finish was blotchy, I decided to do my favorite glazing treatment on the mirror, with my raw umber craft paint as I did here, here and here.
Drip ped some of the craft paint around the mirror
and spread it around with a paint brush-lightly dipped in water, until I got the look I wanted.
Glazing the mirror helped to minimize the uneven appearance of the spray paint as well as provided a texture on the mirror that wasn't really there before.
It's a very minimal change, but it makes a world of difference for me!
I'll be back soon with my lamp update . . .
