Dollar Tree Mirrors Transformed Into Farmhouse Style Elegance
It is so easy to transform some Dollar Tree Mirrors into this beautiful Farmhouse style decor you want to make several sets for yourself and friends. With just a bit of paint, wax, and time you will have budget decor you can be proud of.
We’ve all seen them, those brassy looking cheap plastic mirrors at Dollar Tree. They have a nice shape but they are really…let’s face it…ugly. I finally picked some up the other day because I was attracted to the shape of them and figured I could do something with them, and if not I was only out 3 bucks, so why not?
Once I got them home I let them sit for a while while I thought about how I wanted them to look. Finally, after a couple of weeks I decided to try some of the chalk paint and wax I had bought but never used on them. They were a perfect small starter project to play with the chalk paint and wax. Now it’s time for the fun to begin.
- Chalk Paint
- White Wax
- Small Mirrors
- Heat Gun (if you’re as impatient as I am)
I gave each mirror three coats of Chalk Paint using a different complimentary color on each, allowing the paint to dry in between coats. Okay, so I am impatient and helped it along using my handy dandy heat gun, but it did dry in between coats.
Once the paint was dry I got out my white wax. I coated each section of the mirror and then wiped off the wet wax, leaving it thicker in the crevices in order to give that aged, rich look of patina.
I absolutely loved how these mirrors came out! They will look just perfect on the stairwell when we put up our gallery wall there.
