- 1 gallon colored paint for the wall (Autumn Sky by Valspar shown here)
- painter's tape
- tape measure
- 1 gallon white paint for the trim (Ultra White by Valspar shown here)
Paint the wall with the colored paint; let dry overnight.
Tape off a pattern you like with painter's tape; use a tape measure and level to get straight lines.
To make the lines, paint between the tape with two coats of white. Let dry overnight, then peel off the tape.
New fluted trim and rosettes are combined with salvaged molding to create a traditional-style mirror.
