Beautiful friends, I have another cheapie thrift store makeover for y’all today!
This mirror has been in my stash for probably two years now:
It was only $6 so I really couldn’t pass it up.
It originally had hinges on either side that probably attached to two smaller mirrors on either side, and sat on a dresser. I removed the hinges and filled the holes several months ago and this is how it has sat in my storage room ever since.
I decided to pull it out and just start painting…
Yes, I painted it white, but what is great about mirrors like this is you can attach hooks on either side and create a hall tree of sorts with them:
I found these hooks in a box of three at TJ Maxx for $7.99, already painted white:
This mirror would be perfect atop a table in an entryway to collect keys, leashes, hats, etc.
This would also be great for a dressing table.
It’s pretty cute on the wall here in my office with my sofa table I stole from the living room!

When painting a mirror frame, I always remove the mirror when possible. (And that’s our garage packed with all our outdoor furniture in prep for the hurricane!)
It is so much easier, and I can paint the back of the frame as well so the mirror won’t reflect the ugly brown.
I did have an issue with bleed-through in a few areas this time:
A quick spray of Rustoleum’s Clear Matte spray (affiliate) sealed those tannins in perfectly, and I was able to continue painting without issue.
I used Behr’s Bit of Sugar made into DIY Chalk Paint (recipe HERE) for this one. It took three coats. A quick sanding followed by a coat of Annie Sloan’s Clear Soft Wax and it was complete.
I hope you enjoyed this simple update! If you liked this makeover, you’ll enjoy this one too!

I’ll see y’all back here on Tuesday with this very hotel-esque headboard:
