Cheap Full Length Mirror

I really wanted a full length mirror in my bedroom. One to open it up, it is small and weird shaped. Two, so I could see my clothes after I get dressed.

However, I really didn't want to spend any money. So......

I have 3 miss matched mirrors that I have had around our house for the longest time. They are not really nice, got them at Big Lots, but they do the trick. I decided to make them match with some rustic copper spray paint.

I know everyone knows this --- but --- if you don't, spray paint goes everywhere with it's overspray. Learn from me, and paint in an area outside, where overspray won't get on cars, etc. Or make a spray box out of an old cardboard box. I personally like the box way myself.

Anyway, mirrors taped and ready to go. Spray paint cost $5.00, mirrors, already had, I think I paid $5.00 each at Big Lots many many years ago.

They were a weird silver, and goldish color.

Drying in the sunlight, after being painted and moved.

Hung vertically in my bedroom, now I have a full length mirror.

This would also look great with three different mirrors, or oval or round. Your choice.

Now for the weekend projects, more painting. Painting stairs, specifically stairs down to a family room, 3 down, odd, dark, and yuky. Maybe I should do a Novagratz and number them, or something.

Currently pondering.

Pics on Monday.
