Mirror Mirror (Propped) On The Wall

I posted here about some Target finds I found a few months ago.  I could not pass up this wooden starburst mirror I found for only $14.00.


While I liked the classic lines, I was not a fan of the bland wood tone.  It just didn’t stand out to me.

So, I decided to pick up two small bottles of craft paint and paint away.

This is the end result:

I used two different colors of craft paint with a metallic sheen.  The brand was Folk Art in Metallic Taupe and Metallic Sahara Gold.  The were about $2.00 each and I found mine at Michael’s.

I think I am going to put it above the bed in our bedroom.  While I love pops of color around my house, my bedroom is mostly neutral and I think this mirror will blend in nicely.

I propped it above the bed just to test it out. FYI – It takes an act of God to get ANYTHING hung in this house by my husband, so it might remain propped for a long time!  I should really take matters into my own hands, but we have these old plaster walls that just crumble when you try to hang things.

Can you believe the mirror only cost me $14.00?  It was 70% off at Target.  For my tips and tricks for scoring great decor steals at Target go here.

What do you think?  Do you like it above the bed?  Should I “prop” it somewhere else?  Do tell in the comments!
