Mirror Makeover with  Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue

Have you noticed that a lot of my projects start out brown, dirty and in need of some repair?

My friend “K” and I went on a whirlwind treasure hunt about an hour south of our town.  We had a great time, got lost several times-that’s another story.

 When I happened on this treasure, I think she was a little surprised that I wanted it.  Chipped wood, hazy mirror, all the things I look for when treasure hunting 🙂

I used wood putty in the chipped areas and sanded after it dried. 

I painted the mirror with Annie Sloan Duck Egg blue, used a wet cloth to remove and distress.

Waxed with the clear wax.

The dark brown underneath never looked so good!

You can’t even tell where the repairs were!  Just the way I like it!

She looked pretty paired with the desk/vanity.
