Picture Frame Makeover

I was so excited when Lisa over at The Moonlit Stitch told me about this tutorial on using Krylon Mirror Like paint. She sent me a link from  Drakestone Primitives. I saw it and fell in love with it. It took me a while to find the paint. I couldn't find it for the life of me. I went to 5 different stores trying to find some. Even the Wal Mart in town and they even didn't have it. I ended up going to Wal Mart in another state to find it. I made sure to purchase 2 cans of it. Just in case I didn't make it back anytime soon.
Here is what I made with it.
I forgot to take a before picture but It was just a plain old picture frame.I bought it at the Salvation Army. I didn't even have to do anything to the frame. I liked it just how it was.
I gave it a home above my computer hutch for now. I did learn one thing about making the antique mirror look using water. If you want more antique looking mirror affect. Just spray your water a little heavier. I just misted mine on.  Thank you so much Lisa!

I also wanted to share a few pictures I took of some of my Easter decorations.

What a fun project! I'm running so far behind on my blogging that I think I missed that tutorial by Angi....One of these days, I'm going to get caught up enough to actually craft some of these awesome projects everyone is posting! Your spring touches look great - love the forsythia branches....Wishing you a wonderful week ahead....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin

I Love how your mirror turned out! I bought some of this paint, but have yet to try it. It's on my to-do list!
Love your Spring displays.
