We bought a pinewood mirror at the thrift shop. I saw it and immediately knew I could give it a fresh, new look. See pictures and instructions below how I did it.
First we sanded the back.
We taped the mirror with papers and tape.
We sanded the frame and made it dust free after that.
I used chalk paint, old white, in combiantion with water and an old rag. Just spread the paint with the rag and your fingers.
This is how it looks like after 2 layers.
Remove the taped papers from the mirror. Cut a potato in half and clean the mirror, rince it with some water and scrub it with a paper untill dry.
Take a staple gun and put a thin wooden panel at the back.
And now it's hanging in our hallway.
