DIY Mirror Makeover with Rub ‘n Buff
I wanted to show you a quick little DIY makeover I did on the mirror above our fireplace!
A couple of weeks ago, I needed to style our fireplace for some sponsored content, and I didn’t have anything pretty to put above the mantel. I tried several different pictures that I had in storage, but they didn’t look good. I had seen this inspiration picture on Pinterest, and was hoping I could do something similar…
I didn’t really have any money to buy anything new, so I went out to the storage shed to see if I could find anything that I could make work. That’s when I stumbled upon this blue mirror that I had gotten in 2011.
I found this mirror at a Goodwill store, and I think I paid about $7.50 for it. It was brown, and I painted it blue. You can read about that tutorial HERE.
I didn’t want a blue mirror on my new fireplace, but I did like the shape of this one, and it reminded me of the inspiration picture.
I just needed the mirror to be gold.
So I went to Michaels and bought some Rub ‘n Buff. It was only a few bucks with the online coupon, and I got the Antique Gold color.
I used my finger to apply it to the wood on the mirror. It was SO EASY! No sanding. No priming. No sealing. I just rubbed and buffed. (Actually, I didn’t even buff. It just went on so smooth.)
It took me all of 5 minutes, and I was done.
And now I have a pretty gold mirror on my mantel for FREE! It doesn’t get any better than that!
Have you ever tried Rub ‘n Buff?!
If so, what color did you use, and what did you use it on?
