Turning a Thrift Store Mirror into a Gorgeous Floor Mirror

We purchased a floor mirror for $10 about a year ago. We did not know where we were going to put it when we purchased it, but we knew it was too good of a deal to pass up! 
A year later I have found the perfect spot for it, so it is time to get this mirror rehabbed.

I tried to sand the mirror first to provide a rougher surface for the paint to stick to, but it is made of laminate and I could not rough-it-up even with a palm sander. So I ripped off the laminate and then sanded again!  I also decided to prime it with Porter Paints Primer & Sealer in hopes of the paint sticking! 

After Priming. 

I chose Rustoluem Satin Nickel spray paint to finish the job. I sprayed with two coats of paint, and allowed the mirror to dry in the sun for a few hours before picking it up.

The Finished Product: A Dressing Area in our Master. 
Complete with a gorgeous silvery floor mirror and slat back chair. 
Perfect for getting ready in the mornings.
