A Client Mirror

I often receive emails asking questions about painting and specifically about chalk paint.  While I am not in a position to give advice on painting techniques, I freely share my experiences – both good and bad.  That is how this client project came about.

She had a mirror she was looking to have painted.  She is getting ready to list her house and painting this baby was not her first priority, yet it needed to be done.

I know you have seen these before.  This one is in a maple finish.

Not anymore!  She has been transformed.

Mirrors are by far the hardest thing to photograph!

The distressing was achieved with dark wax.  Though it has an old world feel, it is definitely a modern and current piece.

I hope she likes it!  She did select the colors and she saw a sample when she dropped off the mirror on Sunday.  She will be here today to pick it up.

Hubby and I enjoyed meeting her.  She certainly knows her furniture, likes antiques and likes them even more when they are painted!  Just my kind of gal!

NOTE:

The girls have a 5-day weekend and we are having friends in for a few days.  We will then swim regionals and have 3 birthday parties.  Needless to say, I will be MIA for a few days.

So I am signing off for the weekend.  Hope you all have a great one!
