DIY mirror revamp

Something tells me that we’re finally beginning to see an end to this long winter [thank goodness] and maybe just maybe the first signs of summer? Of course I say this with complete hesitance because, although I don’t believe in fate, bad fortune, superstition or coincidence, I’m certainly a skeptic when it comes to weather predictions in this rainy region. Not that I ever need an excuse to decorate [as if any gal does?] but now that the sun will apparently be showing its face what a better time than now to revamp my office?
A creative space surely aids in brainpower after all. Surely. Although this beautiful space isn’t quite up to par just yet,  here’s a little sneak peek of some DIYing I’ve been up to. This is your run-of-the-mill TJ Maxx [TK Maxx if you’re on this side of the pond] reject mirror that was rescued from the clearance pile and lovingly brought back to life with a little TLC and a tin of spray paint.

Will you be doing any house sprucing this weekend dolls?
  • Such a fabulous idea! I’m always seeing scratched mirrors and such in the clearance bins!!!! Hope you are well!!

  • Love the gold you chose! & I love buying stuff from discount stores & sprucing it up to make it mine! Constantly perusing the shelves at TJ Maxx, Ross & Home Goods!

  • This turned out great! I plan on picking up another bottle of gold spray paint soon, I have a few things I have plans for 😉

  • Hey Tara! Just thought I would leave you a little note on your blog 🙂 Love this mirror by the way — it looks fabulous! Looking forward to meeting you at Miriam’s wedding! Very fun!!

  • I’ve got a mirror that needs painting and I’ve been thinking I need to find out HOW. Yours turned out great!!! 🙂

  • Nicely done!! It always makes me feel good when I find clearance items that I can still make work! 🙂

  • This is so cute! I love taking dinged up items from the sale area and revamping them into something new and beautiful. Great job, girl!

  • Good job! I am hoping to get some spring cleaning done this weekend – even though it hasn’t felt like spring!

  • Looks great! Gotta love cheap finds and redos! 🙂

  • Love the gold!! Definitely dresses it up! xo

  • Fun DIY! Love the color you chose!
