One of the things that I love the most is getting emails from clients asking for me to paint a piece of furniture for them. They are usually a piece that means something to them. This was the case for one of my recent clients. She had 2 beautiful old mirrors that belonged to her Grandmother. She almost got rid of them because they were plastic. I was thrilled that instead she chose to send me a picture and asked me my thoughts. Well here is where I share on how to paint plastic with Fusion Mineral Paint.

Don’t they seriously look like wood!!

 

Supplies needed:

 

 

Step 1 – Using a beeswax block rub all over the detail of the mirror and anywhere you would like for the paint to chip away.

Step 2 – Using the painter’s tape go along the edge of the mirror to prevent you getting any paint on the mirror. Or if it’s easy to, remove the backing of the frame or mirror. That way you will avoid spattering as well.

Step 4 – Using your sander start distressing until you get the look you’re after. First time distressing and a little worried? Not to worry I have a few tips that might help!  Once dry remove all of the painter’s tape and give the mirror a bit of a clean with some good old Windex. If you do end up getting some paint on the glass don’t worry. Just grab a razor blade and carefully remove from the mirror.

  1. OMG! I love how the mirrors turned out, Sam! I would’ve never guessed that these were plastic. I’m sure your client is thrilled with the results!

  2. Oh my goodness, Sam! I have never tried fusion mineral paint but I have been wanting to! – these mirrors turned out beautifully and the paint looks fabulous!

  3. These are gorgeous Sam, they look like the $300 dollar ones I was drooling over. The fact they are plastic makes them more appealing because they won’t be heavy.
