Mirror, Mirror beside my bed....

Here's a little "granny" to "glammy" transformation to brighten your Monday: I got this little night stand at a garage sale a while back...




You know I'm addicted to spray paint.... as many in our little "blogland circle" are...

....in fact, at Walmart they insisted on seeing my driver's license. Apparently, I had so many cans of it in my cart, they thought I may be getting "high" off of it. Well, in a sense, I AM !!!!

For this project, I chose a metallic silver.......

I know it doesn't show that well in the photo, but in the sunlight it sparkled.







Here's where it got "glammy"..... a trip to Michaels....coupon in hand.....






Bought a couple of packs of these............



And behold.............




Mirror, mirror beside my bed........









Next time I'll show you were this ended up!



Stay tuned for more great makeovers over at our fearless leader's blog, Susan at Between Naps on the Porch!I'll be joining Kimba at A Soft Place to Land.... Do it Yourself Day as well.
I will also be linking up to Rhoda's Thrifty Monday party, I know you'll seeing everyone's great finds there as well!

OK, OK ... my mouth is literally hanging open on this one! I cannot wait to try this little trick on something/anything ... even if I have to find it in a thrift shop.

That's wonderful! Ive never used spray paint, I have to get over my fear of it... for some reason I think it will peel, not cover, not look right. I think they've worked all that stuff out :)
