DIY: Rub and Buff Mirror Project

I have a hard time parting ways with perfectly functional furniture.  Case in point:  A Basket Weave Wrought Iron Framed Mirror from the first days of our marriage.

After surfing the web for days, I stumbled on to a few Rub and Buff project sites dedicated to costume making for medieval fairs and robot conventions – no joke.  But aside from the silly name and the crazy projects, I decided this could be the lifesaver for that wrought iron mirror.

Rub and Buff is extremely easy to use, a little goes a long way, and dries almost immediately.  You can apply it with a clean cloth, but I used q-tips to avoid an all over spray painted look.  I also used two colors of Rub and Buff to allow for some tonal variation.  Overall, I am extremely pleased with the results and have been scouring the house for other objects that need a little update!

Would love to hear how you are using Rub and Buff – drop me a note and let me know!
