Mint Mirror Makeover for the Entry Way

Removing wallpaper is not the most inspiring or creative endeavor… so yesterday, even though there is more work to be done in the bathroom I took a break to paint this mirror and make it pretty.

I picked up this mirror for $6 at a Yard Sale. It needed a coat of paint; but I knew that it had promise as a great piece for our Entryway.

It’s painted with a sample pot of Valspar Satin Paint in Belle Grove Sorbet. It’s a very soft minty green. This same paint is on the edges of the shelves in my hall closet makeover.

I used my Xyron Creative Station {affiliate link} to apply adhesive to the back of scrapbook paper which was cut down to the size of the drawer sides. It’s a cute pop of color when you open the drawer.

Using the same scrapbook paper, my Cricut and a smaller Xyron Sticker Maker; I labeled the inside of the drawers. {Both of those are affiliate links too!}

The mirror felt a little off-balance when the door was open {since it blocks the right side of the wall} so I added two thrifted frames to the left side. You might remember them from our old Entryway.

One of my new {also thrifted} chairs sits right below the mirror. It’s the perfect spot to put on shoes or set your bag.

Next up: getting rid of those coral walls. It’s not a bad color, I love it in some spaces — but it’s just not us. And luckily, I don’t have to remove any wallpaper first 🙂

Now… off to work on the bathroom! We’ve decided to hire out the tiling. It’s a DIY project that we’d like to try someday; but we have a lot of other projects to tackle right now. The good news is, he’ll be starting this week so we’ve got to finish up the demo!

Do you ever take a break from the tough projects to paint or be creative? What have you picked up at a Yard Sale that just needs a coat of paint for a new life in your home?
