After I found out I could actually hang these on the wall I wiped them down prepped them and primed them with Zinsser oil based primer with a small foam roller.
Then I spray painted them white! Just Semi gloss because I am hoping my kids won't touch them and dirty them (I generally go with high gloss in this house of dirty fingers)
Then I couldn't figure out which way was up.
Now that I think about it that is hilarious. When they were faux wood I thought they were a certain way and then painted they seemed to look better the other way. Then I felt they needed a little more depth so I went to Michaels and stared at a wall of paper for a very long time I chose 15 different kinds of paper (talk about indecisive) then i headed over to Joannes to stare at a few walls of material making sure I chose the right option (I am not a big fan of Joannes with my kids in tow because it takes SOOO long to chose) Here are the final choices
Mirrors Free (these are popping up in thrift stores for cheap because what are you supposed to do with such a heavy mirror?)
Zinsser primer $8.xx
Roller $3.94 for a little kit
Rustoleum 3x cover white Spray paint $3.54 per can (I used 2 cans)
Hanging kit $2.50
drywall screws and hooks $3.xx
Paper .13cents (I used 1 sheet per mirror)
so total around $25 for two large wall mirrors. YAY! Although it cost me less because I had the roller kit and the primer already.
If you have these mirrors hiding in your garage you can make them a great accessory in your home.
