Painted Finishes On Mirrors…

I love to paint decorative trim, its so easy to make it look like  a million bucks…

Mirrors  are typically a great source for decorative trim –  this one was gussied up with a coat of CeCe Cinco Bayou Moss then CeCe Dover White,,   sanded and wiped back, then clear waxed –

(you can click on the picture to see a closeup)

I use Caromal Mocha Reclaim on this mirror, for my first layer.  Over that I dry brushed a Metallic Silver Blend,  then  Caromal Colours Toner.  I stenciled with CeCe Simply White

This one is CeCe Caldwell Simply White crackled over Vermont Slate using Elmers Glue…  for step by step on how to crackle with CeCe paints, watch my youtube video   Crackle Nightstand

Here is a before mirror, of my clients’s, painted black…

She painted it CeCe Simply White, then lightly sanded and wet wiped it back

when she got it to where she liked it she sealed it with CeCe Satin Finish…

How cool is that, right?

This mirror I used Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat paints

  1. First coat brush Caromal Colours textured basecoat Paprika AND Mustard, both brushed on at the same time, randomly….  (dry)
  2. Brush on Caromal Colours Chipping Creme  (dry)
  3. Brush Caromal Colours textured basecoat Peppercorn (dry)
  4. sand to distresss
  5. Brush on Caromal Colours Toner,  wipe off
  6. Dry brush accents with metallic paint Champagne.

Quite a variety of looks – that’s the beauty of these paints…

  1. These are simply beautiful! I am always amazed and impressed by your skills. When I am ready to paint my master bedroom furniture, I’ll be asking or your input. 🙂 (That is, if you don’t mind.)

  2. Sorry, ‘for’ your input.
