French Mirror: Re-Do


I found a great mirror at the Flea Market this week and I brought it home.  
Before:
The mirror was in good shape, but I thought it could look better.  I painted the frame in grey gesso and then did a white wash over the grey with watered down white chalk paint.  To give the mirror a little bling I used Rub n Buff on the bow details on the top.  The last step was to wax the mirror.  I think it turned out very beautiful! 







I love the beveled edge
