sten­cilled wall mir­ror

Cus­tomise a tired mir­ror in less than an hour

Style at Home (UK) - - Contents -

We’ve been in­spired by lot­tie’s un­usual mir­ror and have added a per­sonal touch to our own us­ing a flo­ral sten­cil.

This step-by-step project takes just one hour to com­plete and would make a lovely present for a new home or for new­ly­weds as a wed­ding gift.

1Po­si­tion the sten­cil in your cho­sen spot on your mir­ror and stick in place around the edges with mask­ing tape. Fix sev­eral more pieces of tape, work­ing out­wards from the sten­cil, to cover the mir­ror. Make sure the sten­cil is stuck se­curely in place to avoid it mov­ing around while spray­ing later on. Use news­pa­per to cover the rest of the mir­ror’s sur­face, to pre­vent the spray from frost­ing the wrong ar­eas.

2Work­ing out­side on a dust sheet, ap­ply some frost­ing spray onto the sten­cil area, hold­ing the can ap­prox­i­mately 2030cm from the sur­face. leave to dry, then ap­ply a sec­ond coat. Once com­pletely dry, care­fully peel away the news­pa­per and mask­ing tape to lift off your sten­cil.

pi ck a sten­cil to suit your look– go for some­thing geo­met­ric for a mod­ern edge, or choose flo­ral for a more clas­sic, fem­i­nine fin­ish
