We thought that a mirror would be the perfect solution. The problem was that mirrors are so expensive! We needed something that was at least 3 ft x 3 ft. So I decided to check out KSL.com to see if I could find anything. I found this mirror listed for $50:
When we went to look at it, we asked the girl if she would take $35 and she did. Then we happily took the mirror home. I knew that it would need to be painted since it is a brown color, and doesn't match anything in our house.
I was lucky because even though it looks like wood this mirror is metal. So, no sanding would be involved in the refinishing process. I just took it out to the garage, covered the mirror with newspaper, and spray painted it with THIS spray paint. It is Valspar's Gloss Mediterranean (#65089).Here is a close up of the finished product. I love the color...you can also see some of the new couch pillows in the reflection.
