Goodwill Mirror gets a little ORB love


It’s no secret that a can of spray paint can do wonders…dare I say, even miracles! But my new spray paint flavor of the year has to go to Rust-Oleum’s Oil Rubbed Bronze.

I’ve used it before on my Goodwill Brassy Globe and loved the way it turned out. Ever since I’ve been on the lookout for more treasures to paint with my new found friend.

I found this mirror for $6.99 on one of my Goodwill treasure hunts last week. I loved the design but was not a fan of the finish.

It had kind of a yellowish green tint to it….

So I popped out the mirror and gave it a few coats of ORB.

I think it turned out beautifully!


If you haven’t tried ORB before I highly recommend you do. Luv it! :)

  1. Beautiful!! I haven't tried any spray paints!
    I think I will try this, I've been thinking about spray painting our ugly gold
    knobs I will have to check this out! thanks!

  6. Gosh is there anything ORB can't improve?! Looks lovely, nice work.

  7. Wow! That turned out great! Thanks so much for linking!

  8. Makes me wish I had my Mother's old mirror back from when I was a kid! Good pick!

  9. Oh the ORB is so much better than the original! The shape is great too!

    Thanks so much for linking to "20 Below Thursday"! :)

  10. Ah, the miracle that is ORB.

    I love the mirror-that sort of loopy sculptural thing that's going on is awesome!

  11. Excellent!! These are really scarce now -- I know because I've been looking at our Goodwill stores and thrift stores and they are no where to be found! You did a beautiful job!

  12. This project came out so great! I would happily put it on my wall. May I have it to put it on my wall? Pretty please? No, okay, I'll settle for the inspiration to make my own! Thanks!

  13. Nice! We JUST bought a gold mirror at Goodwill and will be sprucing it up with some Black Spray paint too. Who knows, we may just use the same one you did!

    Thanks for sharing. First timer here.

  14. Hi Angie-

    What a fun find for $6.99. When sprayed with oil rubbed bronze it instantly went from outdated to trendy. It looks like something right out of a catalog.

    Thanks for leaving me the nice comment.
    MY best- Diane
    I love your header :)
