I’ve got a really short and sweet one for ya today

Back in December, I gave our floor mirror a makeover. I had been wanting to paint it for years and with the current bedroom makeover in progress I thought now is the time.

Our bedroom makeover is almost complete. The only thing we are waiting on is our doors for the drawer fronts. We are planning to use the same company that we used for our island refresh when we remodeled our kitchen a couple of years ago.

So as soon as we pin that down (and get them in) I will be sharing the reveal of our bedroom. In the meantime, be sure to check out the sneak peek in the mirror reflection. ;)

Floor Mirror Makeover

Here is how it looked “before”…and how it came from the store. I can’t remember where I bought this…Kirkland’s, maybe?

Look at that cutie in the reflection holding his toy and watching his momma! haha
Ryder always finds a way into these pictures, I tell ya! lol

Anyway, the frame was just plain ole black. Which didn’t really go with our new room decor/style.

So I laid it down right there in the bedroom on some blocks and got busy.

I painted it with “Coco” by Annie Sloan but this color and this color by Fusion Mineral Paint is similar.

Then I heavily dry brushed with go-to white chalk-style paint.

I don’t use wax often anymore but did on this one. One coat of clear Annie Sloan Wax.

And that’s it! Done!

Loving the more relaxed feel of the frame now.

I can’t wait to share the whole room with you.
If you missed the nightstand makeover, you can find it here.

Just another example of changing it up if you don’t love it. Paint can make anything “new”!
Have something you no longer love? Give paint a try!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend, friends! Catch us at the beach condo over the weekend on Instagram! :)



  1. Hi Nan y! This is kind of the look I give my mirrors I sell in my booth but I use a paint with texture (DIY paint) and then white wax. I will tell you why and maybe you can help me. I fail every time I try to dry brush a flat surface. A long flat surface. Every time I try it is blotchy and you can see where I stop and start. Do you know what I mean? Any advice would help. I have tried and tried. Thank you !!

    1. Hi Cheryl! Oh, that sounds fun!! Love the texture idea. Ah, yes, I understand. Well, you might be using too much paint. And/or maybe heavier handed as you first lay or lift the brush. I get that some too. I think it’s a little unavoidable but you can do things to help. Like being more deliberate with a light hand. And I will use the brush as it’s very dry (after the paint has been used up and you didn’t dip again yet) and sort of go over and over it to kind of blend it just a bit. Hope that helps! :) xo

  2. hi love the mirror. What kind and name of the blue in your bedroom. I love Navy, but havent found one that looks navy.
    Thank you

    1. Thanks! The color is Indigo Batik by Sherwin Williams. Naval by Sherwin Williams is also very nice and probably a truer navy than mine.

  3. Nancy, I love the driftwood-y look now!! HUGE difference and you are so right, softer looking. Way to go!!
    Have a wonderful, creative weekend!!

  4. Wow! I’m always in awe of what a difference paint makes. I like the mirror standing on the floor and it looks so good against the navy blue wall. Have a fun time and don’t overwork at the beach!

    1. Me too! Thank you, Cecilia! We did an overnight and got so much done in a short time! I was surprised, lol. xoxo

  5. Very nice update in style with that fabulous floor mirror. Can’t wait to see the entire room reveal – the sneak peeks are such a tease.

    Looks great, Nancy!

  6. What a transformation and such a great mirror for a bedroom. And…that Ryder, he really knows how to steal the show. Your posts wouldn’t be the same without him sneaking in. Have a great weekend.

    1. Thanks, Nancy! Sure, you should be able to. It might just be a bit different because of the bumps but as I’m envisioning it, I think it would be lovely! Might add to the character of it. xo
