Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Mirrors

As I said yesterday, in addition to my table project I painted two mirrors to go above the table in my upstairs landing. I decided to use the Paris Grey paint by Annie Sloan so that there would be a contrast with the table but also have some coordination to the tones in the water paintings on the art wall. I like the layered effect of two mirrors and I love that the moldings are built in the opposite directions. I did distress them a tiny bit and then of course waxed them.

I do have to change the ugly little knob on the table but I have not found an antique one that I like, so for now that is going to stay put so that I can open the drawer.

On a side note some of the photos are a little wonky because it is hard to take mirror photos without getting yourself in the mirror or a railing or who knows what else. Maybe I will learn photo tips from my blogging course that I signed up for from Decor8.

P.S. The tile installer is here!!!!

  1. Love the layering and this color is so soothing. Thanks for sharing at Market Monday. Plse come again.

  2. I know just what you mean....I was trying to photograph a huge mirror the other day and either kept getting myself, or other stuff that was on the other side of the room and didn't want in the photo...

    I think I need some of those photo tips, too!

    Beautiful mirrors and I love your candle holders, too....

  7. Elizabeth,
    I like what you did. Paris gray is my favorite color so far of Annie Sloans!
    I 'met' you after I painted my sideboard in my entry.
    I have restyled since then, removed the lamps, probably should take another pix!
