And here she is now:
The finish was really easy. I brushed on one coat of CeCe Caldwell paint in Beckley Coal. Once dry, I brushed on one coat of wax and while still wet, sprinkled on some Dust of Ages by Amy Howard.
Most chalk paint companies have their own version of an aging dust. It is pretty much that, dust. It gives the look of something that has been sitting around for decades. You sprinkle it on a freshly waxed surface, lightly brush it around, and once the wax is dry, you can buff off the access.
What I like about it, is that it can be used over dark or light paint to create an antiqued look.
You see those little shelves on either side of the mirror? Back in the day, before electricity, you would place a candles on those little shelves and the mirror would help reflect the light into the room. Pretty cool, huh?
So what do you think? Obviously, it is much too large for this little bookshelf. If I were keeping it, I would probably hang it on the wall. I’m digging the large scale of it.
If you are digging it too, it’s available under the shop tab.
