DIY Mirror Kitchen Sign

After deciding not to throw out this old beveled edged mirror, inspiration struck to make a DIY Mirror Kitchen Sign for my kitchen | www.raggedy-bits.com

I’ve had this old mirror sitting in my studio for I don’t know how long! It once was a dresser mirror, which  I removed as it was all crazed and converted the frame part into a chalkboard for my market stall. It’s great to let people know that I  do furniture makeovers and also hold painting classes. 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!

Supplies needed:

 

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.

Kitchen
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.

I used my No2 Round brush with  white paint and blocked in the word Kitchen. I watered the paint down a little to make it not thick and easier allow the paint to flow better.

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.

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!

  1. How cool is this? Way cool! I love that you came up with another use for the mirror, the shape and beveled edges really look great with the chalk paint and the light sanding.

    I love the verse too, that’s how we feel about our kitchen, we all end up hanging out there and this sign is perfect!

    1. I know right!! How awesome is the kitchen!! I LOVE it!! It has so many funny and memorable times in there for me and I hope also my kiddies and hubby! So glad that you feel the same way to! 🙂

    1. Thank you, Janet. Yes, it was a case of that I thought I had taken a photo of the “before” mirror but when it came time to write the post there wasn’t one, a big boo-boo on my part. The mirror was a mirror with a bevelled edge and badly marked. Enjoy your week ahead 🙂

  2. Such a cute little addition to your kitchen! The kitchen is indeed the heart of the home 🙂 I think even I could stencil with that process 😉 Thank you for sharing at TaDa Thursday!!

    1. Thank you so much, Susanne! It is in the perfect spot because when the kids are home that’s where we spend most of our time LOL! We WILL get you there with stencilling I PROMISE! 😉

  3. I would never have thought of painting a mirror. I guess I thought paint wouldn’t stick. I can imagine some great ideas from this. Yours is great btw!

  4. This is so adorable. I really want to do one of my husband’s songs from when he was opening for bigger bands like Dave Matthews on a board for a bedroom. I need to get some time and learn how! IT is just so darn cute.

    1. Thank you so much, Pamela! I’m sure that your Sign will turn out amazing!! What a special thing to do for your husband! I’m sure that he will love it 🙂
