Today I thought I would go into a little more detail about my office makeover, and share my mirrored cabinet project. I got this cabinet for $10 off of Craigslist.Â I’m pretty sure it was from Ikea?Â It’s made of particle board, but had really nice glass doors.
I wanted it store things, but didn’t want to worry about what it looked like inside.Â The solution was to turn the doors into mirrors.Â I bought two cans of Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint.Â It wasn’t easy to find, but I ended up getting it at Hobby Lobby.
I wanted the mirror to have an antique appearance, so I used a squirt bottle with 1 part water to 1 part vinegar.Â I just lightly sprayed the glass with the water/vinegar mixture, then lightly sprayed the mirrored spray paint.Â I did really light coats, repeating the steps.
I love the look!Â It’s really hard to see in the pictures, but there is a lot of variation in the mirror.Â It’s amazing how much it looks like an old mirror.Â After I sprayed the mirror, I gave the outside of the cabinet a quick coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.Â It adheres well to laminate and worked great.Â A few new door knobs from Hobby Lobby and for around $35 (total) I have a really cool storage piece!

The rest of my week, will be preparing for Easter and traveling.Â I am finally going to get to meet my newest nephew on Friday!Â Come back on Friday, because I have someone you will want to meet!Â 😉
Have a happy and BLESSED Easter!!
