A while back I made a few posts where I painted up some of the old dresser mirrors. Fast forward a few months later and my mirror stash has grown again! So I have been working through them turning them into either fun coloured mirrors, or into chalkboards.
For this one, I painted out the frame, distressed, glazed with some white accenting, I then painted out the backer-board of the mirror with black chalk paint. Presto! Contemporary chalkboard.
Below are a few I donated to Mr Chuckle's sister's stag and doe party.
I love the way the patina turned out on this one. I painted in the same teal as the stag and doe dresser, I then sanded heavily and 'glazed' using stain and applied dark wax.
For this french one, I actually liked the green shade of my custom-tinted primer, that I just used primer. Three coats gave good coverage. I then glazed with stain again and finished with wax. It also got a heavy distressing. The patina turned out really nicely on it.
