~mirror mirror on the wall~

My project of the day~I bought this giant (over 4' tall and over 2' wide) mirror and although the gold color was a bit formal for my taste, I knew I had to have it!Another thing I liked about it is that it is obviously very old.
The frame was a bit chipped up and the mirror is slightly de-silvered, which I love the look of!

I applied 3 coats of Ralph Lauren Roadster White
and once it was dry, gently sanded it down and aged it a bit!

I love how it turned out!
It now fits in perfectly with my decor!

Pretty! If I find a mirror like that, I'm turning it into a chalk board.

Love it! I love quick and easy projects. I will have to check out Roadster White, I am always looking for new creamy whites to paint stuff.
