Mirrors are great items to add to your home. They not only provide more light to a room, but can also fill in blank wall space in hallways, nooks and entryways. However, finding the right color frame to match your existing decor and color scheme can be hard. If you've got a mirror with a tacky or mismatched frame, don't throw it away! You can easily (and inexpensively) paint the frame to compliment any room in your home, even if you cannot remove the mirror from the frame.

You will need:

  • painter's tape
  • newspaper
  • sandpaper
  • primer (spray or acrylic)
  • paint (spray or acrylic)
  • paint or foam brush (only needed if using acrylic paint)

NOTE: These instructions work best on wood and laminate frames.
