Goodwill Mirror

The first Saturday of every month, our Goodwill has a 50% off store wide sale. If I am in town, I will join the chaos to treasure hunt. These are my most recent finds. The paperbacks were fifty cents apiece. I envision the skirt becoming a cute apron some day.

I paid four dollars for this golden beauty.

I considered painting the mirror black, but decided red was more fun. I used Rust-oleum Ultra Cover in Colonial Red. (I did read what Garfield had to say before painting over him)

I think the mirror is the perfect size for this spot in our family room. In this photo you get to see a tiny sneak peak of one of the Christmas trees.

It was four dollars well spent and I have no buyer’s remorse!


  1. It came out absolutely gorgeous (I'm not really a fan of gold, lol) and the red really pops! I'm always on the lookout for ornate frames at my Goodwill but never seem to find any :(

    Coming over from:

  2. Wow - I love that and it IS perfect in that spot!

  3. My Goodwill is sadly lacking...I love this! Stop by and enter to win my Heirloom ornament...only 1 day left to enter.Warm wishes...I'm a new follower!

  4. IN LOVE, ! I've got to get myself some Rustoleum! I've heard and now I see that it works great. Last time I tried painting a mirror similar to that, I used red paint, like for crafting and that didn't work, yours looks PERFECT!!! thanks for the tip and sharing it with us!

  5. I love this mirror! and that it's now red! I tried a similar goodwill/spray painting venture and while everything looked good in the end, I realized that spray painting is not for me. My entire garage floor now has shiny, black paint all over it, and I even put down plastic!

  6. The mirror is the color you looks wonderful...I am a new follower of yours and I will be back again...


Thanks for visiting! All of your nice comments make me smile!
