Do you have a design philosophy about mirrors? I know I do. For instance, I think every room should have at least one mirror. Not necessarily to be the main focus, more to bring light and sense of space into a room. Antique and vintage are my mirrors of choice, but what do you do with one that has great lines and style but is too gold. Paint it of course.
So when my friends asked me to help dial down the formality of this mirror for a better fit in their charming home, I pulled out the Chalk Paint.
Enough gold to accent and enhance the lovely carved details without overwhelming them. A small change makes for a now perfect fit.
Don’t let the wrong color cause you to overlook a vintage treasure. Paint makes for an easy transformation.
