    This is such a neat idea. I would’ve never envisioned that an outdated mirror can look so stylish. I wish I have the space to try all this out.

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Thank you, Ming! You could always try hand painting it. That way you don’t have to worry about a place for spray painting and fumes. 😉

  6. Great re-purpose & love the results.

  10. Rose says:

    Very nice idea you give for the mirror you convert it into serving tray and its such a great tutorial that you shared.

  11. Berit says:

    Hello! I’d like to know what kind of paint are you using?

    1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Berit! I really should have included it! I’m not exactly sure but likely I used the Krylon ColorMaster Enamel Spray Paint. I used that for most of my projects like this. It works very well.

      1. Berit says:

        How does it stand scratches and such? I have a wooden dinner table that’s paint needs to be refreshed, but i haven’t figured out wether i should use a brush, if so which paint or something sprayable. Im quite a n00b at this 🙂

        1. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

          I painted this table with a paint brush: http://www.diyinspired.com/refurbishing-furniture-a-thrift-store-makeover/. I recommend sanding the table first, then applying two coats of primer. Let the primer dry overnight. You can then spot sand any bumps or blemishes. I would paint the table top with a roller brush and then use a regular bristle brush for the rest. When choosing your paint, use a water-based enamel paint. After you paint it and it is dried completely, paint a coat of polyurethane on top to help protect it. I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions. I would love to see a before and after photo!! dwulf@diyinspired.com

          1. Berit says:

            Another question about sanding – do you sand the old paint completely off or just the places where the old paint is cracked or scratched to make it smooth?

            I’ll try and not get carried away once i get the time to do it and take some photos as well 🙂

            Thanks for the info!

          2. Dinah Wulf Dinah Wulf says:

            You’re welcome! I use an electric sander to try and get off as much paint as possible.
