Gold... White... Gold

1.02.2012

The last project I did of 2011 is this sunburst mirror that hangs over our bed in the master. A few changes are taking place in the master and I decided to change the color of the mirror......again.


Until I find an affordable sunburst mirror to replace this cheap copy from Hobby Lobby I will just keep changing this one. It was originally a gold color and I painted it white and sanded some of it back off.


This is what it looked liked over the bed. The room has changed somewhat and I thought maybe it would look better changed back to gold. You will see the changes to the room soon.


As you can see it is not a perfect finish on here because I didn't want it to be perfect.



All I did was use Rub n Buff in Gold Leaf.

Until I get a better one this will do.

Simple and easy change.


Have a super duper first week of 2012!

  4. I like how the gold is not too overwelming, but adds just a touch of shimmer. Great job!!

  10. I like how it turned out. Did you know that I gave my mirror like that away to Goodwill?! I had painted it white at one time and then I stopped using it. I gave it away because I didn't think it was in very good condition to sell it. Glad yours has held up through the changes! I recently saw a pretty one for sale at Wuzlu. It was a unique shape and finish.

  16. I don't think you have to replace it...it looks stunning and very expensive. I just bought some rub n buff but I think I got the regular gold. May have to exchange it for the gold leaf! Have a good week yourself. I'm off one more day and then back to school on Tuesday. :o(

  24. You are the master of re-do's! I'm in awe of your ability to do quick change-ups that make a space just right.. until you decide you might like something else! It's what we all dream of doing, but we mostly just live with what we have!
    Hope you had a great Christmas and New Year's and I wish you the very best in 2012!
    Cheers to another year of inspiration!
