I bought this mirror from the Will several months ago but just wasn't sure what I was going to do with it.
I do that. Buy something and stare at it for far too long trying to make a decision on what to do with it.
Anyway this is a fairly old mirror, early 40's was stamped on the back and it was in great shape. I just did not like the finish. Brown. Boring brown did nothing for it.
The second lesson I have learned is don't put AS Lacquer over the wax. It will peel off. I have learned that the hard way. I do know those that have done it and it worked great for them but let me tell you when it doesn't it makes a mess!
Another trick I have learned when painting mirrors is this. You must take the mirror out so that you can paint the inside rim. If you do not the mirror will reflect the unpainted edge and it looks pretty tacky.
It recieved 2 coats and then I used a heavy hand with the sanding.
Then lightly applied a coat of AS Lacquer to seal the paint. I like how it deepens the color.
I would love to hear what tricks you have learned using this chalk paint.
