A Little Shabby Mirror - Painted & Repurposed....

Take one little shabby mirror...whose life purpose had been as wall décor in Mia Bella Passions homestead.
Then it became a mirror for the ring-neck parrot in his aviary for a long while,
was eventually returned to the back porch -
to the original wall décor status for quite some time more,
only then to be hidden away in a cupboard for many, many years!
First a clean in soapy water...
once dismantled and dry, choose paint colour...and give it a touch up with paint.
I simply used a brush to paint on the creamy white colour, using the dry brush painting method.
Layering the paint to the desired effect.
A shabby chic slightly rustic kind of look to the finish was what I was after,
and it turned out fabulously...
New look - new life!
This little shabby mirror has been painted,
and is now repurposed as a mirror tray on the coffee table.
