Old wardrobe mirror upcycling project.
About a year ago I’ve found old wardrobe in a skip. As I was going home on the bus I’ve managed to salvage only a door pane with a mirror. I decided to turn it into a wall mirror.
The process involved filling up empty hinge and lock spaces with wooden plugs, removing old varnish and painting with Rust-Oleum paints and getting crackle effect.
For painting I used Rust-Oleum Fire Brick chalk paint: http://amzn.to/2wkZwhb (affiliate) and Rustoleum Duck Egg chalk paint on top: http://amzn.to/2ygHLwH (affiliate) For crackle effect I used Rust-Oleum crackle paint set: Base coat: http://amzn.to/2wmeRxI (affiliate) Top coat: http://amzn.to/2xJFQU8 (affiliate)
It’s simply to follow the instructions on the tin:
- base paint against the wood grain to dry,
- base crackle coat against the wood grain to dry min. 2hrs,
- top paint applied quickly and wait until all crackles will develop,
- top crackle coat for securing.
Mind your head comes from E-bay, as well as steel line clips. I also added some white reclaimed enamel hooks for hairbrushes or other accessories.
