Large Grey Mirror


As I was on a search for treasures I found this very large heavy gold mirror leaning in a corner at a local thrift store.  I loved the shape, but was not crazy about the color.  It looks worse in person then this picture.
Before:



I mixed up a batch of grey home-made chalk paint and painted the entire mirror.  I then painted a gain with a lighter grey and then dry brushed white on the mirror.  I distressed a little and then fell in love with the new mirror.
