Follow along with this colorful tutorial and learn how to upcycle your own mirror with COLORSHOT Premium Spray Paints.
Thoroughly clean your mirror
Before you get started on this spray painted mirror makeover, be sure to thoroughly clean your mirror frame from any dust and debris. Check out this cool vintage mirror Anitra will be upcycling—COLORSHOT works on a variety of surfaces, such as metal, wood, glass, and more!
Cover mirror surface and choose your spray paints
Protect the mirror’s surface from overspray by covering the surface with a drop cloth, plastic garbage bag, or other protective work surface and secure the edges with painter’s tape. Pick out which COLORSHOT colors you’d like to use for your spray painted mirror— the more colors, the better! For this project, Anitra used Marshmallow, Little Black Dress, Center Stage, Hello Handsome, With a Twist, Mermaid, Island Girl, Emoji, Clear Skies, Orange Slice, Summer Pedicure, and Cosmo!
Prime the mirror with COLORSHOT white primer
For brighter and more vivid results, use COLORSHOT White Primer to give your mirror frame a solid white base. Allow the primer to dry completely, then proceed to spray paint with your chosen colors.
Spray paint your mirror frame with COLORSHOT
Now is the fun part—getting to paint with vibrant COLORSHOT colors! Shake your spray paints well and begin to paint each section with your desired color in slow, even strokes. Allow each color of paint to dry to the touch (it only takes about 10 minutes with COLORSHOT!) to prevent the colors on your spray painted mirror from getting muddied.

Once you’ve finished spray painting your mirror, seal with COLORSHOT Clear Sealer Gloss. Allow to dry completely, then carefully remove the painter’s tape and protective surface cover. Your new rainbow spray painted mirror is now ready to display!
