First of all, THANK YOU all so much for your sweet and supportive comments on yesterday’s post. I am so thankful to you all for your kind words, and for sticking with me, whether there are 3 furniture makeovers a week or one or none. You are the best!
Of course it is time for Piece of Work Wednesday, so I made sure I finished a small project for you this weekend. I bought this mirror at a church yard sale last Spring for $3.
Don’t be deceived…. it looks better in the above picture than it was. The gold paint appeared cheap and was flaking slightly. I sanded it lightly by hand, and spray primed it. Then I was so excited to put to use some of the Farrow & Ball paint I won in a giveaway from Sarah at Modern Country Style. I received 3 sample pots, one of which was a color called “Blue Gray”. It is a gorgeous color, but definitely appears a little more green gray to me. Either way, I love how it changed the mirror. After I painted it, I distressed it and rubbed a stain over it to give it an antiqued look. Here it is now!
It definitely doesn’t look so cheap anymore, and has a classic European appeal! Can’t wait to try the other colors I got!
