Mirror Project

st time I went home to Chattanooga to visit my family, my mom gave me this mirror she found at a thrift store. At first I really wasn't sure what to do with it, then I decided to do experiment a whitewash finish on it.

Here is what I did to get the finished product:
   - Taped off mirror to protect against damaging (sanding, painting)
   - Sanded mirror (first with 90 grit then with 160)
            - don't sand all of the original finish off [this gives it that "antique" look]
   - Mix white wash mix (1/3 paint - 2/3 water)
   - Apply as many coats as it take until the white wash is to your liking
   - Let dry!
