I've long coveted this lovely mirror from my good friend's over at Pottery Barn,
but the price has held me back.
So I sourced (from Lowe's) a similar mirror, but at a much lower price, and put it on my birthday list
(yes, back in May!).
Lucky me, I received it - thanks Linda and Dave!
The plan: paint, antique and distress.
Here it is after one coat of primer and two coats of Francesca by Martha Stewart Living Paint from Home Depot.
Next up: hitting the high point with my favorite, Rub n' Buff in Antique Gold.
Quite a bit of elbow grease later and the antique gold has been buffed to a subtle finish.
Close up for your viewing pleasure!
Now it's just a matter of finding a place for our newly refinished mirror.
Mr. DD likes it in the corner of the living room over a vintage painted chest.
I quite like it over the mantel.
Check back later in the week to see where it ends up - it'll take us that long to hash it all out!
