I have had an old, gold-framed mirror just sitting out in my garage for a long time now. It was a gift from my parents when my husband and I got married over 30 years ago. It was time for a make-over!! Out came the Rustoleum Spray Paint (Heirloom White). I use Rustoleum because it gives the best coverage and dries very quickly!. I gave it about 5 light coats of paint (with help of course, since I have two "frozen shoulders" lol) Then the mirror was next! I sprayed the mirror with about 5 coats of Rustoleum’s black Chalkboard Paint. Getting the mirror back into the frame was not easy (thanks for your help Kevin!). I coated the inside of the frame with, what I thought was, heavy-duty glue that would hold it in place. I was wrong!! The mirror fell out. My husband to the rescue!! He made a trip to OSH to get “Gorilla Tape”. He said "duct-tape works every time." I was a bit skeptical. Hubby taped up the mirror and let it set for several hours. It worked. I wrote “bliss” on it with the chalk. Fun!! Below is a picture of the frame hanging over our couch.
Here is a close-up of the frame.
We had to move our clock above the sofa to put our new frame there, so we moved the clock over the fireplace.
Then we had to move the frame that was over the fireplace to the other wall!!
Props to my husband!!!! Thank you honey!! And he thought that he was "just" hanging the frame over the couch…..lol……He is awesome and I am lucky that he is so patient with me!! Debbiehttp://www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=742455358083715372&postID=8887449425243734275
