DIY Pumpkin Spice Mirror

Posted by DecoArt on Sep 22nd 2013

Fall is here!  Bring on the crisp air, pumpkin spice coffee and apple pies!  I especially love decorating for Fall, it just brings on a warm, cozy feeling.  Of course, rather than buying new Fall décor every year I usually like to spruce up things I already have.  I had an old mid-century mirror around the house that's probably changed colors about 10 times so I thought it was the perfect candidate for another revival!
 
I decided to give the mirror a Fall face lift by painting it in Deco Art's Pumpkin Acrylic paint. 

Items Needed:

  • Mirror
  • Medium Sized Paint Brush

Instructions:

My mirror already had a coat of paint on it, so I gave it a very light sanding before applying the new color. After sanding, I applied two coats of Deco Art's Pumpkin colored paint, waiting 2 hours between coats.

I allowed the mirror to dry overnight, then I used Americana's Acrylic spray sealer to seal the paint, this also adds a nice satin shine to the piece.
 
Once the sealer dried, I used a razor blade to clean any paint/over spray off the mirror.  There you have it, a festive Pumpkin Spice Mirror to welcome the Fall season!
