I took this old drab mirror, and turned it into a Fabulous Lace Overlay frame. Items needed: Krylon Metallic Spray Paint, Frame, Lace and tape. I had everything on hand so this updo was FREE $$
End result. Couldn't be more beautiful and was sooo easy. Now...where are those drawers.......
Old Drab Mirro
Just take an old mirror (or frame) and wash it up.
tape off mirror if it is attached to frame whille doing project.
Cut a strip of lace, lay it on one of the sides of the frame, tape down sides and spray paint the lace strip. Be careful to lay your design even on frame.
After spray painting a side, carefully pull of lace strip. You could use ANY type of material for this that has open spots (designs) to spray paint through.
Close up of finished frame. LOVE.

    Great idea. I was wondering if that same concept would work without spray paint but brush or roll on paint instead. I'm getting ready to paint my mirror & trying to use what I have on hand.

      Thank you. I'm just not sure if the roller or brush would catch onto the lace and pull it or smudge it. Good luck Bob!
