Mirror Makeover

What once was a boring accessory I have had for ages is now something that looks more valuable with no more than a lick of paint and 30 minutes. Here's how I took a boring and cheap mirror frame and transformed it into a stylish home accessory.

What you need:

1. Take out the backing cover and the mirror from the frame. 
Paint a thin coat of acrylic paint onto the frame. Dont worry if it is messy.
2.  Concentrate on covering the corners of the frame with the paint as that is where the details are.
3. When the first coat of paint is dry, paint another coat onto it. Repeat this process until you get the desired coverage.
4. Place the mirror and the backing cover back onto the frame and finish off by accessorising the frame with jewellery or whatever you like.
