Welcome Back to Day 9 of my 31 Days of Paint series. See the entire series HERE.
Painted & Distressed Mirror
My sister, Heather bought this distressed mirror at Farm Chicks a few years ago. It is my inspiration for my distressed mirror.
Not sure if I would go this far with the distressing. I love the look, but I am just not that brave.
I love the natural finish of the top with the painted, distressed legs of this table and of course, that aqua color! But am I brave enough to do this to a piece that I spent hours painting? Why not? It's only paint right?
I took some English Chestnut stain to it just to add some age.
Some areas I roughed up more than others.
I think it goes better with my Grandma Clara's settee that I recently inherited.
My "after" picture would have looked better if I had taken these pics this during the day light but you get the idea. Distressing this actually made me like it more. I was going to take it down and replace it with something else because it looked too new with the settee. Now it looks aged to perfection.
