{Dresser Mirror Makeover}

This is one of 2 mirrors I purchased from Goodwill about 4 months ago. I believe they belonged to a dresser once upon a time, but now they belong to mua. I did nothing fancy, just spray painted glossy black and made me a ragamuffin (thanks to The Nester) for added cuteness. I'm thinking of making the other one into a chalkboard and painting it white, what do you think?
I fell in love with the details.
Before: yucky dated brown

After: pretty glossy black

The price on these mirrors were $6 each, but it happened to be 50% off that day, oh yeah.

OK, I was skeptical about these mirrors. The finish and shape looked so dated, but when painted glossy black, wow! The sides look like the beautiful curves legs of an antique. Great vision and exection! Thanks for linking up to FFF!
