Mirror Wall

Project Status: Complete

I added a wall of mirrors to go opposite the aerial points and to try and get more light into the front room. Gumtree, Facebook Marketplace and Freecycle to get these three mirrors for the princely total of £60. I was pretty pleased with that.

The idea is to end up with three silver, weathered mirrors of a more uniform colour.

I had some black poster paint to hand and tried watering that down as an ink wash. Its certainly not a weather proof solution but turned out pretty well

The second frame was already a silver base so just needed the same treatment.

The third largest frame had a white frame that I first needed to spray silver, a couple of light coats seemed to do the trick. First step was to mask off the mirror…

After a couple of coat of silver in spray paint.

Liberally apply the black over everywhere and then take it back with a cloth or paper towels…

Three mirrors now matching and hung. I ended up doing the same to a picture frame on the opposite wall.
