Oval Mirror with Bow

Can of Paris Grey chalk paint and brushes.

I spotted this mirror in a thrift store. It is oval with beveled glass and the frame is adorned with a bow at the top.

To update the finish I chose Paris Grey and Old White. First I taped off the mirror with painters tape.

I used painters tape on the mirror.

I used a flat small flat brush to paint Old White onto the bow on top.

I continued using a small flat brush to paint the Paris Grey. I taped off a few sections of the Old White to prevent any "oops" spots from occurring.

Use a small flat brush to paint in the second color.

I distressed the edges with 220-grit sandpaper. I sealed the paint with clear wax and and add touches of dark wax here and there.
