I glazed something!

I have been waiting for this weather to warm up so I can start working on painting projects. As you all know, the weather blows and I couldn't take it anymore! So I did a small paint project in my basement and let it stink in my house for a few days.

I decided to paint and glaze a mirror we bought on Kijiji for $10. Here is the before picture. I almost forgot to take it, Joe reminded me. So that's why there is paper on the mirror.





Next, I primed it. Exciting right?!!!



Then I spray painted it ivory gloss. 3 coats. It looked pretty good just like that I thought. But I knew I wanted to glaze this one.



Then I did the glazing. I wasn't really sure what I was doing but it all worked out. What do you think?





Next, I want to glaze the end table in my living room. But I will need to wait for the weather for that one.

Sarah!!! I love it!!! I can't WAIT until you do your other projects, since I know how nice they look. Remember to take before pictures of the other projects. LOVE the mirror. I've been looking for one like this for a long time. You've inspired me to keep looking obsessively again.

SARAH! This turned out awesome! At first I was like, "Ohhhhh.... it looks good just spray painted white! But the glazed look is way superior. Good choice! One day you and Jenny need to teach me how to be crafty.

looks awesome! I'm looking around my house thinking about what I should glaze now. Maybe the bench in the front entry?

Wow, I love that mirror! And the glazing looks so cool. Everyone is becoming so crafty lately, I don't know if I'm brave enough to try stuff like that.
