Midas Touch DIY
The home furnishing market is flooded with wall mirrors in every shape, size, material and finish. So why couldn’t I find one that worked for this space? On a mission to find just the right decor item I searched every online retailer, vintage shop, decor boutique, and home store. Finally, after scouring the national and local markets I spied this perfect second hand mirror at a favorite Omaha haunt, McMillan’s Antiques. The price, just $45.
While I fell in love instantly with the clean architectural lines of this mirror the color wasn’t right. It needed the Midas touch. Armed with one $5 can of Metallic Gold Rust-Oleum spray paint, I turned drab into fab!
