Give Your Mirror An Antique Look

If you have a mirror that just isn't interesting enough for your wall, home-centric blog Apartment Therapy shows us how to make any mirror look worn and anqitue-y.

The process is simple and inexpensive, but you'll need a few things first. Apart from the mirror itself, you'll need some paint stripper, plastic putty spreader, Black Patina, a chip brush, and some silver paint. Latex gloves are probably a good thing to have handy as well, to protect your skin from the aforementioned chemicals. It's easy to do, and is a great way to make a cheap, new mirror a bit more interesting (and fit in better if you have a lot of antiques in your house). Hit the link for the full instructions.
