Mirror Makeover Completed

Yesterday I showed you that I spray painted my gold mirror white, but after it was finished, it was a little too stark for the  space. I thought I'd add some walnut stain on top of the white paint to soften it up.


 Here you can see it is a little too white for the space.

So here's what I used

I applied it with a brush and wiped it off with a rag. I used a dry brush so that the crevices wouldn't be really dark. And I also used Qtips to get into the tight spaces.

It looks much better now as it goes a lot better with the accessories in the space.



Wishing you a wonderful week!

Pam
