Round Mirror Love

I have an attraction to old mirrors and this round one is currently one of my favorites!

Remembering back when I was just a young 20 year old and an old oak secretary was given to me and my hubby. It was the kind with the glass door display cabinet on one side and the drawers with slant opening desk and a mirror above. Well that old mirror was all messed up and I didn't appreciate it and had it re-silvered.

Today, I probably would not do such a thing.

But then again, there is paint that I would do!

Here is how this mirror looked when I first got it (sans the mirror)...

After removing the mirror, I used the "Amazing" products that I showed you HERE in this post to repair any missing parts of the decoration on the frame.
The upper acanthas leaves and scroll work is what really stole my heart. Using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Paris Gray, French Linen and Old White, I layered on the colors to achieve my goal of the soft aged look.

I did my usual walking around the house trying to decide where to put this new love. I have so much on my walls that I decided to get rid of this metal scroll and crystal sconce that I had made from above the guest bedroom bed...
And put the mirror in it's place...after I placed a vinyl M on the mirror!

  1. Love it Terry... I have a similar mirror in original paint... I'm not nearly as brave as you are... Maybe one day...

  2. It turned out beautiful, I love how it looks above the bed ;-)

    Have a very Happy Thanksgiving...


  3. Hi Terry, that mirror turned out beautifully. I live part of the year in England and about ten miles away from Oxford where Annie Sloan's mother store is. Each time I visit I get all these wonderful ideas of things to do with her waxes and paints. One of these days I'm even going to implement some of those ideas...lol. Lovely to visit with you, I've never taken part in the Front Porch link before. :) Have a lovely Thanksgiving weekend.

  4. I love mirror, Terry! Above the bed on with a monogram...lovely!!!

    Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. What a pretty makeover Terry! I adore it over the bed. And if you're all done with that sconce, you know where to send it....lol! Mimi...xxx

  6. I love round mirrors, it looks amazing over the bed. Your paint job and replacement of the missing bits is fabulous!

  7. Great mirror. Thank you so much for sharing with Wednesday's Adorned From Above Link Party. Have a great week.
