Emerald Green Faux Bamboo Mirror

I don't have anything earth shattering for you today, but I did try out a new spraypaint color and gave a mirror a little makeover.  I must admit I'm a sucker for faux bamboo so when I came across this mirror at Goodwill I couldn't resist.  The first color that came to mind when I started thinking about painting it was Emerald green.  I have loved that color so much even before it became the color of the year.


So I primed it to cover up the yellow and make sure that design at the top didn't peek through.  Then I gave it a few coats of krylon emerald green spraypaint.  This was my first time using this particular shade of krylon and I really liked the way the color turned out.  It dries super fast too which is always nice when you get a little impatient like me.



ah the power of spray paint



Sadly the scale isn't right for this space so I'll be sending this to my booth.  Tried any new spray paint colors that you adore?
