I managed to broke my driver side mirror from my 97 camry.:) Now, I found black mirror from ebay but I need beige color, they said you can paint it, I dont know how to do that, is it easy to find a paint match and paint it. Any ideas?

I've had good luck at www.paintscratch.com . Had the identical issue with my daughter's Mitsu. Turned out well. The color match was dead on. They have a good write up on how to apply paint.
FWIW

You'll need to sand, prime, then paint. Read the "How to Apply Paint" FAQ on the homepage.

Unless you have other touch up work to do, I would say yes. That's a great price. Here in NJ a body shop wouldn't pee on your shoes for $50. The supplies alone would likely cost over $25 from Paint Scratch. In my case I already had the paint left over from a bumper repair so my cost to do the mirror was zero. I still have material enough to do more.
