Do people not have vision? Or do they just not like to do the work?
I don't know which, but I had picked up an antique oval mirror at a garage sale and basically did nothing to it, but put it in my antique mall booth.
No one wanted it after months of being displayed and a priced decline.
That told me that I needed to bring it home and give it some love! Here is the before picture of the mirror...
See all the pretty detail of the roses around this mirrored frame?
I painted it with Annie Sloan Old White Chalk paint and instead of waxing it, I used Polycrylic sealer since I was afraid of all that Annie Sloan wax getting into the crevasses and not being able to buff it out.
I took this square mirror that I had painted white and added 'Welcome' in vinyl to my booth and it sold FAST. So it goes to show me that people want it finished so they don't have to.
To replace the void on the wall, I put the oval one there. It really bounces light off the lamp and ceiling lights in the evening to give more light in this hall.
It's working for me! Or at least I thought it was! If I could make the sound of a needle scratching a record here I would. Why? Because I only thought this was good. I am currently repainting and decorating my large blue guest bedroom and this faux fireplace was put in here when I redid my master...
