DIY: updated hand painted mirror
If you cannot tell by now, I absolutely love picking up vintage mirrors and refinishing them. This rectangular mirror was in very good condition already, but I thought I try something different.
I finished it in a dreamy grey and added intricate hand painted patterns around the edge.
At first I taped the inside edge of the mirror and then started the paint. The new thing I tried here is that I only used primer as the finish paint. I just loved the shade of grey that the primer brought to the wood. Is this a good or bad idea - you tell me.....
