    You can use chalk paint! Super easy! Make sure to clean off any oils or grease and give it a light scuff sand. Then paint!

    You can use some wax like they use with chalk paint to tone down the gold on the mirror frame.

    There are many spray paint vintage finishes. I would tape off and cover the mirror then use a spray paint to get the look you want.

    I would suggest using spray paint for based coating, or chalk paint, and possibly playing layering apatina finish is over that. I did this refurb over a thrift store gold frame looking for an aged pewter finish.

  • I agree with everyone that recommends either chalk paint or spray paint. Just make sure you tape off the mirror if you can't remove it before painting.
