I took an out-dated plain white mirror and turned it into an amazing Urban design. It was super easy!
What you will need:
First I washed the mirror removing any dust and debris. Then I took the glue I had on hand. You can use any glue here but I found Elmer’s Glue was too runny. Use something with a bit more consistency to it if you are creating a small design. I used jewelry glue–just because I had it. Any glue would work.
I wanted my mirror to have somewhat of a carved “Celtic” look. So I took the ruler and eye-balled distance while making squares all around the frame of the mirror. I let those squares set up and dry a bit and then put the design inside the squares. Then I let it dry over night.
The next morning when the sun came out I took it to my back yard and spray painted it with an antique gold color. After that was dry I brought the mirror back in.
The last step was taking some acrylic black paint and dabbing it on with a sponge. I let it dry a big and then wiped it off, creating an antique look and making the design pop.
And there you have it. A brand new, fun, up-cycled Urban Chic Mirror!
