Project Rewind...spray painted ORB mirror!


A year ago, I refinished a mirror for a client in an aged oil rubbed bronze finish and am loving the results.  Here's the before...

Yup, it was either repaint this baby or throw it in the trash!  So I chose ORB because the client loves Old Word and dark wood furniture.

This paint sprays on beautifully by the Rustoleum!

For the glaze I used acrylic paint in gold metallic and a dry brush technique.  Here's a close up below.

And here it is finished.  So that's how I refinish a mirror with simple spray paint and acrylic glaze.  Week-end projects like this are one of my favorite things!
