Before you get started on your project, thoroughly clean your mirror from any dust and debris. Use Aleene’s Wood Glue to secure the floral wood appliques to the corners and top of the mirror’s frame. Allow to dry fully before proceeding.

Spray paint the mirror’s frame using several light coats.

Cover the surface of the mirror and use painter’s tape along the edges to avoid overspray. In a well-ventilated area, spray the mirror’s frame with several light coats of COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paint, letting dry between coats. We used First Million in this project for an elegant metallic finish!
