A quick mirror chalk paint upcycle!

So, you've got an old gilt mirror that you've had for ages but doesn't really go with your colour scheme? Don't despair, change it up using Frenchic Chalk Paint!

I bought this pretty little mirror back from France but it didn't really shout 'French' to me!

So, this is what I did with it...took less than half an hour and not a lot of paint. You could do it too!

Step 1.

Sugar soap to clean

This would work with any colour combination, or even a single colour. You could change up your photo frames to match too! Go on, give it a try :)
