Supplies: mirror, glass cleaner (I used wipes), acrylic paint, a sponge brush, small paintbrush, and painter's tape (optional)
1. Make sure that you clean the mirror really well with glass cleaner and if you happen to use a paper towel, make sure it doesn't leave any little fuzzies behind. 2. Draw the outline for your amerpsand (you could use other symbols, letters, or numbers too) using the acrylic paint and sponge brush. If you want to be precise, make the outline with painters tape and just make sure to place it outside of where you want the edge of your ampersand. I chose to freehand it because I like the imperfect look. 3. After you have your outline, fill it in using the sponge brush. 4. Let it dry for about two hours. 5. Paint on a second coat of paint and as needed, use the small paint brush to touch up the edges (after removing the painter's tape if you used it). 6. Let it dry for another two hours (or overnight).
Now you have a piece of really pretty art that you did yourself. It's also a wall piece to reflect light and make spaces brighter. This DIY project would also be pretty with a framed mirror.
