I hope you can see it here. The only way I could figure out how to post it was if I deleted the mirror part...which contained my GREAT BIG HUGE flat feet and a considerably less-than-flattering image of my in my 'jammies, taking the picture...kwim? YUCK! Okay, so this is the "before." This is a grand BIG mirror, so I placed her in front of my dishwasher just so you could see her size.
LOVED the pretty scrolly pieces, loved the size, loved the price...bought her off Kijiji for thirty dollars...WOOT!! (Hmmm...is "scrolly" even a word? Wonder if it'd pass the "Scrabble" test...)
Well, I decided to try my newly acquired Chalk Paint, and while I LOVE it, because it's not available in Canada yet, I had to order it from y'all down south, and it ended up costing me more than fifty dollars a quart. OH ME NERVES!!! So I am saving every precious OUNCE and using it judiciously. (Ummm...if any Annie Sloan reps are reading (yeah right...), PLEASE get some stock lists in Canada eh!?)
So, here she is in the midst of her transformation; once again positioned in front of my dishwasher for scale, and once again, thoughtfully liberating you from the image of my feet...
I used Paris Grey paint on the main parts, and accented those delightful scrolly things with Louis Blue. Hmmm...decided I really didn't much like the combination, so here she is in her completed glory, all waxed and sanded and chippy, with (Old White replacing the Paris Grey) and Louis Blue, waxed with clear and dark waxes, buffed to bring out her prettiness, and installed in my bathroom.
The detail, with some Old White dry brushed over the Louis Blue to tone it down a little...
She makes me smile whenever I walk into the bathroom!!
I'm linking to these parties.
THANK YOU so very much for stopping by today. Your comments are like little presents to me! I wish you a delightful day, doing whatever brings you pleasure!
