Mirror Painting DIY

Well hello there!

Lately I've been into DIY-ing everything. No idea why, but it's completely occupying my mind and Pinterest. I've always been fairly artsy so it doesn't really come as a surprise to me that I love doing these types of things. Today I decided that I wanted to paint my mirror, so that's exactly what I did. It's extremely easy but I thought it might be nice to share how I did it.

So my first step was to Windex my mirror because it was filthy. I have one of the long mirrors from Walmart that cost me about $10, but I never use it.

So after you clean it, you have to choose something to put on it. I decided to go with something I've written on one of my Tumblr's before. 

Now it's time to paint. You can chose any colour in an acrylic paint. I chose black. I put a small amount on a palette and used a small round brush. Then i started to paint.



You can also choose any font you would like. This project is completely customizable (apparently that isn't a word but I'm making it into one.) You can even use stencils if you'd like. I opted to try and go for an alternate side route, but it kind of failed me in the end. 

This is what it looked like with the quote finished. I ended up altering the quote, and was left with quite a bit of room at the bottom.

So, me being the "fill every space possible" kind of person, I decided to add a flower. I chose white as the dot, gold as the main part, and blue and purple as the outer petals.







It leaves it kind of stroke-y but I was okay with that. If you want the colours to stand out more you can put a white base down first.

Now my piece was finished. Here's how it turned out.
 The quote says "The world moves on one second after the other. It does not matter what other people think as long as you're happy. It is your life, your choice, your happiness. REMEMBER THAT."

Overall, it's a really simple project. During the painting process, if you make a mistake, you can wipe it off. The really nice thing about this is that you can literally scratch the paint off if you don't like it after a while. I also assume you could wash it too. 

That's all! I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and if you decide to do this project, leave me a link in the comments and I would love to see them!
