Upcycling: Before and After, White ornate mirror




This gorgeous mirror was commissioned by a customer of mine.  She was after a large ornate mirror and sent me lots of pictures of the type she wanted.  After scouring the internet and my usual second hand hot spots I found this lovely bevelled mirror with a very ornate gold frame.
I painted it in my trusty ASCP 'Old White' (two layers as the lighter shades are much thinner in consistency), distressed it with lots of sandpaper so some of the gold came through and then waxed it with ASCP Clear Wax.
I have a bit of an unhealthy obsession with mirrors and I loved this piece so much I wanted to keep it for myself!
