Oh how I LOVE to paint!!! And I don’t seem to do it as often as I would like. But I got asked to do a custom piece for a Client and I was so glad I did. This floral filigree mirror was a beaut to begin with but wowza! Add some creamy white chalkpaint to it, and with a bit of distressing and some darkly tinted minwaz to preserve it, I can’t BELIEVE how much it changes the look! It went from dated to a true statement piece. She is going to hang it right in her entry way for all to see! Here are a few more detailed pics for y’all!
I truly love how the distressing process shows off all of the pretty craftsmanship that was put into this piece. It just highlights all the carved out edges that someone so intricately worked on. Bringing new life to drabby pieces is what makes my heart sing!
I’m am seriously going to to be a on a quest to find a piece like this that I can restore, because I am that in love with it! Annnnddd….BONUS! There is a sweet lil’ shelve to match! Here are a few photos of how it turned out:
Just in time for Spring, I think this piece will be a perfect addition to her home! Thank for letting me share my latest Paint project with you all! Have a lovely weekend and I’m planning to have at least one DIY project for you next week…so stayed tuned!!!
