Double Take: Before & After Antique Mirror

Posted on by Kahli Posted in Before & After Projects, DIY, Painting Projects | 25 Comments

For a few months I’ve had this large ornate plastic wooden frame sitting in the corner of my bedroom with no purpose. I didn’t like it in its natural state, I wasn’t sure if I wanted to paint it a bold color, nor if I even wanted to keep it! That’s when I decided to see if I could give it a silver antique appearance. Here’s a few before pictures:

Double Take: Before & After Armchair

Let me first start off by saying Kah is forcing me kindly asked me to write this post for one of our beautiful furniture re-dos. It was our first time trotting into the territory of furniture upholstering. However, I am ashamed to admit that I didn’t offer my dear sister much help with this project. We (Breeze and I) assisted her with the removal of the old mud-stained  fabric (Kah and a cousin of ours dropped the chair in the mud, while trying to get it in the car). We spent countless days removing staples from the frame. I’m even a little sad to say that we invited my mother and aunt over under false pretenses to help with the staple removal process. I know! Bad twins, but we provided food and movies.

Breeze helping too

See! This is evidence of me helping
