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.
