“Longfellow”, A Mirror Spruced Up

IMG_5759I love painting mirrors.  This one came from an estate sale in St. Catharines.  A very plain gold mirror.  I was so happy when it came into view and going over to pick it up I was really surprised.  I could hardly lift it, it is really heavy.  Made by Kroehler Furniture Company and so marked, it is as solid as tree trunk.

I knew almost right away how I was going to paint it.  It was not a glittery mirror and I felt it was somewhat understated for it’s size and construction.  Badly needing an update I wanted to give it a driftwood feel that would fit into any decor.

First painting it in ASCP cocoa in a solid layer then giving it another coat by dry brushing it in the same colour.  Next came a layer of dry brushing in ASCP Old Ochre and the final layer was Old White.  When the paint was dry I sealed it in AS clear wax.  The thing to remember with this look is you keep layering until you get the look you want.  It is fun!
