Hey friends! You have been sharing so much amazing feedback on the Beach House Vacation Rental! I'm so glad it is inspiring you to plan a trip with some girlfriends, because it really is a special time to connect and recharge. :-)

Back when I shared our Master Bedroom Makeover plan, I didn't include two things in the design board.  One was a dresser that we already had (I had previously painted it Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite with Dark Wax) and am almost done making over into a classic coastal white beauty. More on that makeover soon!

Today's DIY makeover post is all about the other item, an IKEA Songe mirror (no longer sold). The original finish was a silver which we spray painted gold for my daughter's bedroom makeover.  Now that the mirror was moved into our bedroom, I wanted to give it an update since we were going for a casual coastal, but sophisticated vibe.

Here's how it turned out and I have to say I am so in love with it!


The process was simple, layering a couple of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint colors using a dry brush technique. That is one of my favorite finishes to get a beach coastal look. 


To get the look I used:

Purdy Cub Angle Brush

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Pure White

Annie Sloan Chalk Paint French Linen

Annie Sloan Clear Wax

220 Grit Sandpaper

I love how the gold from the previous makeover is peeking through! One of my favorite color mixes is gray and gold. I'm pretty happy with the details when you look close!
