A Mirror I Don’t Have To Paint!

I ordered a mirror from Antique Farmhouse last week that was one of their deals.  It was described as being “blue” and I thought it looked more blue online, too.  I figured I would just paint it.  After all, I still have plenty of ASCP Duck Egg paint.  When it arrived, I couldn’t believe my good luck!

Amazingly, I will not have to paint this mirror after all!  It is a little darker than the Duck Egg on my dresser, but I like to incorporate lighter and darker shades of a color into rooms.

I think I will probably add a little bit of the antique gold rub n buff to the detailed areas.

I can’t tell you how happy I am that this worked out so well.  Now all I have to paint is the table it is going over.  A demilune I bought on clearance from JC Penney several years ago for $40.00.

I’m thinking of doing the reverse of my dresser by painting it Old White and doing accents of Duck Egg.  Here’s a wider shot so you can see where it sits in our master bedroom.  The  mirror will take the place of that fern picture.

I am a little afraid though that the Old White might disappear into the wall, so I’m still debating how I want to do it.

Kathy I love that mirror!! What if you did a coat of old white and then the duck egg blue and heavily distress it. Have a wonderful Mothers Day!

I love that sweet little mirror! I remember seeing that offered by Antique Farmhouse. That is a great color on it. I can see why you grabbed it!

The mirror will loook perfect over that little table. I think as long as the table is distressed the white will work fine. The room looks amazing.

I wanted this mirror, but by the time I got around to seeing the deal, it was sold out. So glad it worked out for you.

Great mirror Kathy!...I guess we need to "stay tuned"

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

OH YAY!

You know, Kath I kinda love that demi as is - the blue mirror will pick up the blue florals on the front - and keeping it as is may help the room not be TOO blue.

Something to consider.

You scored on that mirror, it is awesome. Room looks GREAT!
