Below is the painting process, along with what paint I used. I had some paint left over from My Country-French Cedar Chest make-over and so I was able to get the mirror done and it didn’t cost me anything more out of pocket.

|This is with two coats of Lace.|
|This is the two coats of Lace followed by a dry brushing of Yesteryear, Americana Decor Chalky Finish.|
|It was really easy to just gently scrape the paint off with a Razor Blade.|
|Here is the final product! I cleaned the glass really well and then hung it back up. It’s going to look even better when the wall color is right. I love it so much!|
It never ceases to amaze me how much something can transform with just a few coats of paint. If you didn’t catch it before, the total cost of this project was $20…which was the cost of the mirror and using left-over paint. You can’t beat that price for a HUGE ornate mirror that spans 1/3rd of the living room wall…unless someone gives you one for free of course ;). I was even able to plan the coats of paint around my baby’s nap schedule so it was not very stressful because each coat only took about ten minutes.
