Mirror Mirror On The Wall from Dans Le Lakehouse

Feminist Mirror Makeover

Dans Le Lakehouse

I turned a yard sale find into a daily reminder to love myself on my own terms – not society’s standards of beauty! All it took was some spray paint and a stencil! The mirror is mint, too, so what’s not to love???


  • Mirror
  • Spray paint (for frame)
  • Spray adhesive
  • Custom stencil
  • Spray-on primer (for stenciling)

How to make it

Step 1: Take apart the mirror and spray paint your desired color - use a primer and paint in one for extra durability.

Step 2: Order a custom stencil with the feminist message of your choice. My mirror reads: "WARNING: Reflections in this mirror may be distorted by social constructed ideas of 'beauty'. Many stencil shops make custom stencils - I used Stencils Online for mine (link in post).

Step 3: I temporarily held the stencil on with spray adhesive and covered the other areas with newspaper. Then I lightly sprayed a white primer. I used primer to grip the glass better - a primer paint in one would work too! I love how it looks etched. And so easy!
