mirror makeover

I love when I find an inexpensive, decorative mirror at a yard sale or thrift store and this mirror was no exception. It was a mere $2 and I knew it would look great spray painted.

So, for my last spray painting project of the year I chose a nice, bright yellow…

It looks great on my gray walls. So, the next time you see one of these ugly gold mirrors…don’t be afraid…take it home and make it lovely!!

what are the chances?

Remember this…

the retro dresser I found at the local thrift store and made into our tv stand? What are the chances that I would find another dresser just like this one? Apparently, pretty good because I found another at our local thrift store…exactly like the first one! This dresser wasn’t as pristine as the last one but it was marked down to $17. YES, $17!!! I knew I could work my magic for that price. In typical Nifty Thrifty Girl fashion, I was so anxious to transform the piece that I forgot to take some before pics to show how ugly it was. I did snap some photos of the drawers so you can get the idea of its gold/yellow ugliness…

And a shot of it primed…

And…the finished product…

Our new dining room buffet. I thought the original drawer pulls & knobs were pretty cool so I painted them with a satin nickel spray paint and re-installed them.

Not bad for a mere $17, eh? I spent more on the paint & spray paint than I did on the dresser!

Have a project you’d like help with? Don’t hesitate to contact me! ¬†Stay tuned for more re-dos that I will be offering for sale.
