The Cedarbrook

IMG_6365I found this mirror on Cedarbrook Cres. in Mississauga. It caught my eye because it wasn’t painted a very pleasant colour to look at but the mirror had such lovely curves. I was thinking that it probably had been hidden in some basement somewhere with no one to appreciate and enjoy it.

Well, I came to it’s rescue. I love all the different kind of mirrors and I tend to buy a lot of them. I find it relaxing to paint them and love seeing how they come to life once finished.  This one was of course no exception.

I first painted in ASCP Greek Blue with 2 coats.  When it dried I painted it with ASCP Louie Blue, 1 coat, let it dry a bit then I did some wet distressing.  Next came ASCP Aubusson Blue, 1 coat.  When all had dried I did some more wet distressing on the entire frame to reveal all the layers underneath.  Finishing with AS clear wax.  It is such a beautiful colour of blue now, awaiting it’s new home.

A little note, my camera is in being fixed it’ll take about 2 weeks or longer. So if I can’t get another one to use I will be out of commission for a bit.  Follow me and  you will get my first post when I come back.

      Oh thank you for the lovely comment. This mirror was really in need of an update. It was an awful shiny purple and it wasn’t hard to understand why no one wanted it. But a few licks of paint and voila! A beautiful mirror.
      Thank you for visiting.

      Thank you. I love doing mirrors and you see results quickly. I hope you had a chance to look at my other ones. I also have a few to do I just can’t seem to stop buying them.
