Mirror Mirror on the Wall {A Rainy Day Project}

I have been seriously bad about getting my posts up on the weekend! Unfortunately, this weekend it wasn’t because I was out of town or doing something fun, it was because I was sick. So, I spent most of Friday, Saturday and Sunday on the couch.

But, these mirrors (from an awesome Junior League rummage sale fundraiser) were the perfect project to do inside on a rainy, cold day once I was feeling a little bit better. (and getting the itch to paint!)

I painted both with a white DIY chalk paint in Behr Creme Brulee. Then, on both mirrors, covered the Creme Brulee with DIY chalk paint in Behr Intense Teal. (I’ve used this color a couple of times now- it’s definitely a fave!)

The tall wood mirror got some sanding, distressing with fine grit sandpaper and then polished up with some danish oil.

Here she is after:

The smaller mirror was begging for all of those swirly details to be brought out so, I went into all the crevices with expensive boutique dark wax my husband’s black shoe polish! It worked like a charm! I just rubbed a generous amount into the grooves, a couple of inches at a time, and then wiped it off. I think it really makes it charming and gives it an antique look! I’ll definitely be using shoe polish on furniture pieces in the future!
