Simple Tips: Paint off Mirrors

I love simple tips!  I told you I was crushing on this quatrefoil mirror, right.  Did I tell you I bought one!?  Yep!  And I love it so much.  I tweaked it just a bit with a coat of white paint.  Easy stuff…except I obviously didn’t cover the mirror real well.  I ended up getting a bit of paint on my new mirror.  No worries…that’s an easy fix…

Lots of Simple Tips

Solution:  Non-Acetone Nail Polish Remover on a Cotton Pad.  Takes paint off in 2.2 seconds (if that).  Flawless and Simple…I love it!  I’ll show you where I ended up hanging it real soon.  What are your favorite Simple Tips?!

    Is it ethyl acetate, or alcohol, or what?

      What happens if you use acetone?

    I used to link up here all the time when I first started blogging. Somehow your site fell off my list! I’m so glad I found you again.

    I’ll be adding your party to my Party Page so that my followers and I will remember to come back each week. I hope you’ll visit my party, too.

  3. Thanks for hosting sweet Aimee!!! 🙂
