The Mort Family & The Tale of Two Mirrors

I am here today to share with you the tale of two mirrors, both great makeovers that involved spray paint and stickers.

I actually made over 3 mirrors while working with the Mort Family, and you can read about the first one, here.

They were showing thru and giving a weird texture, I actually had to paint it a few times to get it right.  I ended up using Rustoleium’s  hammered texture spray paint, I guess you could say I fought texture with texture? Anyway, it turned out pretty well after I put some STICKERS on it!!

Another mirror was used in the living room.
