Chalk Paint on Syroco Mirror

I got home last night from my trip to Pittsburgh.  Pittsburgh is a wonderful city full of beautiful, old houses with amazing architecture.  I meant to spend a day taking pictures of houses to show you, but somehow I just ran out of time while I was there.  Nancy and I are having our monthly flea market at Loot this weekend and I am rushing to get everything done after being away for so long.  If any of you live close enough, I would love to have you stop by for our sale this Saturday and Sunday from 8-4.

Loot
3011 Main Street
Soquel, CA 95073

I just finished this mirror and it will be for sale at Loot this weekend and then on to my etsy shop.


I love Syroco mirrors and it makes me happy when I stumble upon one at a yard sale.  This one started out gold with pretty scrolling details.


I used Country Gray Chalk Paint and it had no problems adhering to the Syroco frame.


After painting the frame, I distressed it all over, so the gold underneath would show through in places.  Then, I used a combination of clear wax and dark wax to give the frame more depth.


I love the muted color of the Country Gray combined with the elegant scrolling of the frame.  


I am also pleased with the way Country Gray looks with dark wax over it.   I want to try this combination on a larger piece of furniture too.
