Let's try a re-do!

Our latest Before and After! My mother in law had this mirror just sitting in her basement! With her brand new home addition she's been wanting to vamp up some of her old decor! It turned out so great! I wanted to put up some pictures and give tips for refinishing items and getting that distressed look!

Tip 1: When possible make every effort to REMOVE any parts you do not desire to paint. Remove all hardware, any glass, screws etc.

Tip 2: Sanding by hand is so ridiculously annoying for large projects... I'd suggest using a sander to get the majority of the project sanded down! Apply even and pressure when sanding and put a little muscle into it!

Tip 3: When distressing, blot excess paint off your brush before starting. This allows you to have control of how much paint you apply!

Tip 4: Use a drop cloth... I didn't... look at my table... ops! (It washed off! No big deal!)

She loved it! What projects have you been meaning to redo this summer?
