A promise is a promise, and quite frankly, I'm pretty excited to share the beautiful job my sweet Savannah did on this mirror, all while I was at the office!
First, she carefully taped newspaper over all of the exposed mirror,
sliding it under the ornate carvings for full coverage.
Then she hauled the beast outside onto a table we'd set up with sawhorses and leftover plywood...
...and started spraying it with several light coats of Rustoleum Satin Aqua.
Doesn't this just pop?
Check out those gorgeous carved details.
lI got home and did a little quality assurance touch up here and there...
...and then it was time to remove the newspaper and tape!
We used a little razor action on any paint that had made it past Savannah's barriers.
And we debated whether or not to white wash over the aqua for a more subtle effect.
But looking over those curvy details I just knew.
This mirror isn't a subtle piece, which is why I loved it in the first place.
It's an attention grabber. It commands the room. And for what I have planned for that wall, she's going to be perfect.
And I just LOVE how unexpected she is.
Baby Wells approves.
