As a preview to February's focus on DIY projects and before/after home renovations, one of our favorite house tour participants, Jenika Kurtz, filled us in on her latest DIY project. She picked up a mirror at a thrift store for under $50 and surprised all her friends and family with its transformation. It now lives above the bar cart in her dining room.

Refinishing and painting furnishings can give them a whole new identity. Jenika's DIY project is so easy and in only four steps, you are done!

What You Need


  • Scrap Paper
  • Painter's Tape
  • Primer Paint
  • Spray Paint (Any desired color)

Step 1: Protect glass by taping paper over the face
Step 2: Dust off the frame
Step 3: Coat frame with primer first
Step 4: Spray with desired color (be sure to use controlled strokes, don't just keep spraying)

MORE INFO: Jenika also shared her DIY window coverings project with us last March.
