How to quickly update an MCM Coppercraft Mirror In Aqua

Remember the ever so popular Coppercraft Guild Plastic Wall Art from the '70s?  Recently during a trip to Goodwill, I found a mirror for under $5. I love all the different patterns and textures and knew, painted a bright color, all those details would pop. In less than a half-hour, I updated this Mid-Century Modern Coppercraft Mirror in aqua and it looks so pretty!

This is what the mirror used to look like...

Here's a close up of all that lovely texture that just shines now after just a few light coats of Aqua spray paint.

After the final coat dried I protected it with two coats of Rustoleum Painter's Touch Ultra Cover Clear Coat.

I don't use spray paint often but when I do, this is one of my favorite go-to colors.  Last summer I painted a Bistro Set in this color and it sold very quickly.

I think it looks so fresh and modern and would look great in any room.

The turquoise whitewashed tray is also a plastic thrift store find that I brought back to life last year. You can catch that makeover here at Plastic Tray Refresh.

Before I end this post, did you catch the Between The Lines series last Tuesday?  I was one of the lucky bloggers to be featured in the first edition.  If you missed it, you can catch that post HERE.


Between The Lines is a new blog series that takes a peek into the lives of bloggers over the age of 50. Every Tuesday for the next nine weeks, a group of bloggers will be interviewed and featured by Katherine at Katherine's Corner.

You can catch Week Two of this series HERE.  For those of us "seasoned" bloggers, it's a great way to meet other bloggers in the Nifty Fifty Club!

You'll find this project linked up at these fabulous parties.
