I shared pictures of my stash of frames and mirrors in an earlier post where I admitted to stowing them under the bed. Well I finally finished prettying them up! I have to say that beautyfying ( yes I made that word up) mirrors or empty picture frames are easy as pie. I can paint and distress a frame in the wink of an eye.
It took me probably, oh, an hour and a half to paint these. I used to put painters tape around the frame to keep paint off the mirror but I learned it’s less time consuming to just take the paint off the mirror with a little Simple Green after the frame is dry.
The next day I distressed them with my handy-dandy electric sander. FYI, if you accidently sand the mirror, it will distress also. Something I learned in a prior project. Just thought I would share that info in hopes that you want ruin a mirror the way I did!
I simply dry-brushed this detailed frame.

The turquoise and the green are colors I custom mixed.
Ready to tag and take to the shop.
Anyone out there have a special technique for mirrors or frames?
