Tutorial: Make A Faux Antiqued Mirror



  • Thrift store picture frames with glass (The glass is important and it is much better if it is chipped or cracked to add a more vintage feel.)
  • Spray bottle with one part vinegar to 3 parts water
  • Krylon Looking Glass Spray Paint


  1. Take the glass out of the frame and clean. Start with a light spritz of the water vinegar solution on the glass.
  2. Take the spray paint and lightly cover the glass with short bursts about 6″ away.
  3. Let dry and repeat the spritz with the vinegar solution and then the spray paint. Do this about three to four times.
  4. Make sure the glass is completely dry before slipping it back into the frame. Make sure the painted side is on the inside and the smooth side is out.
  5. Scuff the frame and add some paint of your chosen color.
