My parents rehab houses and they are always finding junk left behind in the rehab houses. They pulled this large, gold mirror out of one of their rehabs and saved it for me. My parents are great at fixing up old, run-down properties and they have done this since I was very young. They have always inspired me to see beyond the broken down facade.
The mirror was dusty and gold with raised grape vine designs.
I painted the mirror with Paris Gray Chalk Paint and then dry brushed the corners and edges with Old White.
I applied clear wax over the entire frame and then blended in dark wax for an antiqued look.
I have not used Paris Gray for a while, but after painting this mirror I am reminded what a pretty hue it is. I am planning on using it again soon on an old dresser waiting for a little relove.
