Goodwill Mirror Makeover

I recently bought this mirror at the Goodwill for $2.92...
I have seen a lot of mirrors similar to this, but the frame is usually plastic so I pass them by. This one, however, was resin. And, it is very heavy even though it is a small mirror.

I used my Annie Sloan Chalk Paint to give the mirror a little makeover...
Besides not having to sand or prime, one of my favorite things about chalk paint is that you can distress a piece by simply using a damp rag to remove the paint. That way you don't remove the color underneath like so often happens using sandpaper to distress.


Ah, much better! Now, I have a large mirror to tackle. I'll share that one soon!
