UPCYCLING HACKS

Have you finished your decorating project and found yourself with some left-over paint? Have a go at our super simple mirror upcycle hack using only 5 items – including the mirror!

1.

You will need:

Masking Tape

Primer & Undercoat

Mirror

Brushes

Matt Emulsion Paint

2.

First start by masking up the edges of the mirror, this is to ensure no paint gets on the mirror itself and allows you to be a bit messy!

3.

Once you have masked it all up paint one coat of our primer & undercoat (undiluted) this doesn’t have to be neat as the matt emulsion will cover any imperfections.

4.

Leave this to dry in a cool and dry area for approximately 4-6 hours

5.

Take your paint and this time a little more carefully paint a coat on top of your primer, this should now be full coverage and hide any mistakes you made with the primer! If not, a second coat will certainly do the trick!

6.

Carefully remove the masking tape whilst the paint is about half way through its drying time (2-3 hours)

7.

Hang your mirror, step back and admire your handiwork!
