Gold Octagon Mirror Art Deco Makeover

Are you ready to take your decor to the next level on a dime? Transform an antique octagon mirror into an Art Deco showstopper with just a few cans of spray paint and savvy bargain shopping. In this article, we’ll show you how to transform an old mirror into a luxurious Art Deco statement piece, with expert tips and tricks on what to buy, where to buy it, and how to style it. I’m also share inspiring before-and-afters that will inspire you to add a bit of glamour to your own home.

So grab your spray paint, and get ready—it’s time to give your decor a golden glow!

4 Materials you will need: 

See it’s pretty simple and inexpensive.

After spraying this mirror facade with a couple coats of primer (allowing it time overnight to dry) I then sprayed it with 2 coats of the metallic gold spray paint.


After letting the mirror dry for an extended period of time, I peeled off the painter’s tape and then styled it in my accent wall collage.

Here is the gold accent wall collage.



First I decided to lay my options out on the floor to figure out the configuration that would work.

But, this is what makes this exercise so successful.

I knew gold accents were the direction I wanted to got in, but with a beautiful wall collage, some texture and dimension were needed.

The trick is finding a variation and yet a happy medium. You do not want there to be a heaviness to the collage. Keep in balanced, which is what I tried to accomplish with the smaller items.



Then comes the hanging portion of this exercise. You can do this in a variety of ways. I chose to use a hammer, nails, cordless power drill, and screws because I am not afraid of a bit of spackle and sanding when I move out of this place.

As a renter, I am fearless when it comes to decorating. Some cautious renters try to use command strips or double stick tape to hang decor, but with the heavier pieces {like the shutter and the mirror}, that technique wasn’t going to work. Thus the heavy-duty materials. Here is what it looked like in progress after the painting of the accent wall.
