I had a mirror in a closet that wasn't being used that was the perfect size. I started by taping off the glass.
I painted the mirror with Anne Sloan Chalk Paint in old white. I had some trouble getting into all of the spaced around the raised dots on the mirror. I grabbed a can of Heirloom White spray paint and painted around the trim. BTW it is essentially the same color as the old white. I couldn't tell where I sprayed and where I had painted.
I started in one corner with my stencil. I used Duck Egg for the stencil.
After finishing the first side I realized that it would have been much smarter of me to start in the middle and then work my way to the sides. So for the remaining three sides that's what I did.
I dipped the end of my brush into the duck egg to paint the raised dots.
After I was done with the stenciling, I used a clear wax and then a dark wax to add some character.
So here it is in the bathroom. It's only leaning for now since I still have to paint the bathroom.
The other reason it's not hung on the wall is...I'm not sure I actually love it? Problem #1 is until I get that paint color changed on the wall I don't think I'm going to like anything. Problem #2...my goal was to create a french looking mirror...did I achieve that or does it look southwestern???
Problem #3 - I have to address the poor lighting in that bathroom!! Ok, that will be for another day.
So I ask you...is this a hit or miss??
