- Cover the entire mirror instead of just taping the edges. Little speckles of paint got on the mirror that I had to pick off.
- I used oil based primer instead of water based. I read on another blog that oil based is what they primarily used. I think I’m going to stick with water based from now on. It was a mess to clean up and is still on my hands. If anyone knows what difference it makes, I’d love to know.
- I used a sponge paint brush on the white part instead of a regular bristled paint brush. With all the nooks and crannys on the frame, the sponge was the only tool that would get paint on it all.
