I got this hideously gold-gilded mirror on clearance at Menards. I thought it would be perfect for black, white and red downstairs bathroom –with a little spray paint of course. So I took the mirror home and got out my Canyon Black spray paint by American Accents, taped up my mirror and went to spray town.

BEFORE……… and ……..AFTER

It looks really nice, I am pleased. But after I hung it there was a HUGE eyesore in the room! Can you guess what it is? No not the dressing room light fixture, although that is bad. No, not the cushie tushie hanging on the side of my toilet for potty training my son.

The AWFUL OAK CABINETRY! Looks like I have a little more painting to do. Just add that to my never-ending list of house projects.

  1. oooooh what a difference the mirror makes….it looks really cool. so what was the discounted price?

  2. love the mirror! What color will you do the cabinet? At least you only have that one in the bathroom…LOL! I have a whole kitchen full of those oak looking nasties!

  3. LOVE the refabing of the mirror. This is exactly what we did in our new house, but our two mirrors were $5 each at a yard sale and very horribly gold!! A little white spraypaint for one and black for the other and they are like new!! Who needed the $400 allotment from the builder for 5 mirrors!!!

  4. I have those ugly cabinets in my kitchen and both my bathrooms. I HATE them! I’m planning on painting the kitchen ones white, but I haven’t decided on color schemes for the bathroom yet. I LOVE your red/black bathroom and that mirror is gorgeous in there, so I may consider stealing all of your ideas for my downstairs bath. 🙂

  5. Very Cool! I love the red bathroom too. Red looks good in a house. Very relaxing! Thanks for the tip on my blog comment verification. I took care of that. Poof! Gone! Those things are annoying! Take care:)

  6. Ooo-lala. Am I bad to think the mirror wasn’t that hiddeous to begin with? But your vision for black made me see the error of my ways. I’m so silly. I bow down to you, Beck!

  7. Black, black, black…paint it black. Or red first, then black…and “antique” it with the red showing a bit.

    But that’s just me.
