PB Inspired Mirror Makeover

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!
