I recently purchased this great old mirror at an auction at a reaaaally good price. I wasn't crazy about the wood finish, so, of course I did what??? PAINTED IT.
I thought I'd try something different this time, so I used Gesso instead of paint. It gives the piece a little softer look. After two coats, I let it dry, then lightly sanded (hitting the high spots). That's it!!! I didn't varnish, since I wanted to keep that soft look. Wouldn't this be perfect above a bathroom vanity or a dressing table??
See ya'll soon. I have a great old dresser that I painted PINK and I love the way it turned out. So, come back in a couple days and give me YOUR opinion.
Thanks so much for visiting. 8-)
