Here's one of my favorite crafty secrets: fingernail polish! I get the really cheap kind in funky colors, and I 'paint' it on all sorts of stuff. This is a nice mirror I got at a dollar store, it was silver, with a little gold paint, also. I think it was supposed to look distressed with the gold. I put on some lavendar fingernail polish, and now it's absolutely beautiful!! It's hanging on my cube wall at work (exactly where my blind spot is, so people can't sneak up on me!), and the pretty color makes me smile every time I see it.
