Faux Vintage Mirror Tray


Our goal with this project was to upcycle something from "found" objects. For the tray we used an old vintage frame, backing from an old desk, and a pair of vintage drawer pulls. Take a look at how it all came together.

First things first, remove the hardware and clean with Krud Kutter and a Scotch Brite pad made quick work of the cleaning step.

Next, to get the vintage mirror effect, we laid the well cleaned frame glass in a box and misted with water/vinegar we sprayed two coats of the mirror spray, making sure the first coat was dry. You can do more coats for different looks.

The frame was sprayed with the Chalked paint. The handles were cleaned only to bring out the original patina.

Lipstick was used to mark the placement of the handles on the frame...

Everything is clamped down to drill the holes. A countersink bit was used to recess the screw heads.

Because this is glass, it can be used as a dry erase board!
