I’ve had this old mirror sitting in my studio for I don’t know how long! It use to be a dresser mirror, which I removed as it was all crazed and converted the frame part into a chalkboard for my market stall. Just so that I can let people know that I do furniture makeovers and also hold painting lessons. I really loved that the edges of the mirror were bevelled and didn’t want to throw it away. So I decided to make a DIY Mirror Kitchen Sign and share with you!

- Chalk paint – I used one of my favourites Duck Egg Blue.
- 120 grit Sander block
- 1/2″ Paint Brush
- Americana Deco Art White Acrylic Paint
- Liner brush
- No 2 round brush
- Graphite Transfer Paper
With the kitchen being one my most favourite places to hang out and when my kids are home that seems to be where we all congregate and chat. So it seemed perfectly fitting to turn this mirror into a DIY Mirror Kitchen Sign.
Using my paint brush, I gave the mirror 2 coats of chalk paint and then sanded back the entire area, being particularly heavy around the bevelled area on the edges.
Then in my favourite font, I printed out a sweet Kitchen saying that I found on Pinterest.
a gathering place for family and friends-
a place where memories are homemade and seasoned with love.
Then using the graphite transfer paper I began to trace the wording onto the mirror.
Then using my liner brush I continued on with the rest of the verse.
Once all of the lettering was dry, I used my 120 grit sanding block I lightly sanded back the verse to give it a nice worn look.
Once you’re happy with the desired effect, wax to seal.
The mirror now has a new home and every time I see it it makes me smile and think of all the chit chat and yummy meals that we have had together as a family and the plenty more to come!
