This is how it started, it was on the side of the road, so I grabbed it
Excuse Ace, he was admiring himself as cats do.
I decided to paint it dark brown....
It reminded me of Elvis and velvet paintings
so I decided to change it up.
I used the jigsaw and cut off random pieces...,
like they may have been broken off... then randomly sprayed
areas with a rust colored spray paint over the brown finish.
I used the flour treatment on the frame for a super aged effect.
I sprayed oven cleaner in random areas on the back of the mirror
to eat away the protective coating and give an aged look to the
mirror as well.
Then I repainted the frame with layers of color.
Did you know that it's hard to take a picture of a mirror without yourself in it?
Well...it is, so ignore the girl in the painted up clothes
You can't see very well where the mirror is "aged" from the oven cleaner, but it's there!
Going for the rusted, pitted, wrought iron look,
Using the flour really gives it that realistic aged, look.
I happen to like it now...much more interesting to me.
What do you think, would you have left it alone?
This one of a kind mirror is sold.
