Sometimes you just don’t have time or energy for big projects. Sometimes you are on a deadline and you have a wall that needs a little something. Sometimes you have a guest room in a cottage and your sister tells you that you need a mirror in the room, and well you just grab what you have. I found this mirror for $1 at a garage sale. Excuse the dust and the mess in the background – renovations are messy people – look away!
It was our last day before our renters were coming in and I had a few little “spots” that needed “something”. I grabbed this mirror and (oh my gosh this is almost too easy) a coat of Fusion Mineral Paint Fort York Red.
(Which I think should now be called Lunenburg Red or Cottage Red since I used it so much in our cottage) anyhow…I digress…sorry… I do that a lot.
Back to the ugly dirty mirror.
Honestly, 5 mins or less to paint this up. Second coat less than 5 mins. (This is where I tell you that I waited the 4 hours minimum between coats, ya, nope, didn’t but, do as I say not as I do)
You can see my jar is messy. No time for pretty props or pretty blog post worthy shots, we were rushing through here people, honest, we painted about 10 things a day. Seriously. Just wait until I do a post and show you how many things 1 jar of Fusion Mineral Paint did at the cottage – amazing!
In a very short time I had this cute little mirror. Easy Peasy. This is after the first coat. Great coverage for a red!
I finished it off with some cute map bunting. I am totally obsessed with map bunting. Seriously. I was inspired by my friend Danielle at Finding Silver Pennies and this blog post.
I love how this little garage sale find turned out. We used and reused a lot of cute finds and a lot of paint in our cottage reno. I’m always surprised what a little paint can do.
What have you painted lately? I would love for you to leave a comment and tell me.
Thanks for popping in! I truly love that you do!
