Before & after: Oval mirror

I've been wanting an oval mirror to go in the bathroom at our new place.  I wanted white, preferably with some interesting detail, but I didn't want to spend too much.  So I was happy to find this oval mirror at Goodwill for $7.99!

The frame was simple wood but it was painted a sad dull blue color.  I taped off the glass and gave it several coats of white hi-gloss paint, and put it in the (still mid-decorate) bathroom above the sink!

It makes such a big difference just to paint it--I'm really glad I found the right shape mirror to re-do!  Such a simple change, but it really helps.


  1. Colour plays a big role in anything you make!


  2. It is amazing how much a little paint can do, isn't it?! I love the shape of that mirror. I've alway liked the look of an oval shape above a bathroom sink.

  3. Love those small changes that make large impact projects. My daughter just completed a similar mirror, but she decopaged the frame

  4. Love the white! I also love your blog! I have actually given you an award! Check out my blog for more info! http://janinethemachine.blogspot.com/ Have a great day!

  5. I'm loving seeing all of your updates to your new home... a good reminder for me especially that sewing is not just about making clothing! Our current place has all plantation shutters, but one of these days, I will be excited to try my hand at some curtains!
