I choose an antique white spray paint that I already had, oh my am I cheap. I sprayed the inside and top first and let it dry. Then I turned it upside down and did 2 good coats. After that was dry I did a little touch up spray on the rim just to be safe. That's it. Took maybe 5 minutes of actual work, my kind of DIY! I ordered some mirror effect spray paint and I can't wait to use it...I just have to finish the whole moving thing.
