Redone Mirror

My aunt ask me to redo this old Kinder-Harris mirror she had in storage...it had been around awhile...

She and I both worked for the company and I must say I learned many things during my time there.

As you can see, it is made of a couple different woods, and had been done with a blue paint and a blue glaze.

I love projects like this....so I got to work.  I used Krylon Dual Ivory (I am a Valspar fan, but I have to say this new dual paint has got my attention), I used a couple coats and it the coverage was amazing...no sanding before and no priming...WooooHoooo....

I let this dry a couple days and then late one night when the house was quiet, I got out my dark wax.
I applied with a natural brush and working it into all the detail spots, this brought the frame to life. 
As I worked with the wax, I decided I really liked what it was doing with the base color, so I got a soft rag and worked it into the rest of the frame...
Ok just short of getting out the studio equipment...I think I did ok with the after photo...hey it was late and work with what you have right....SMILE 

Any who....I know she is gonna love this as much as I do....matter of fact....I have a smaller one in my bath....think it is time for another redo...

Enjoy........and thanks for stopping by...until the next project...BIG SMILE...
