I have a few more "Shabby Chic" items to share today - things that go on the wall! We have lots of furniture pieces in the works yet to share but for today I am sharing some mirrors, the stained glass framework and picture frames that got painted.
This large mirror in the dining room up above turned out just the way we wanted, also the antique stained glass piece that hangs in the window and the frame on the faux oil picture on the wall (End of The Dinner Party) and the frame on the rose oil painting over the buffet in the kitchen.
I have to tell you something funny. I bought this mirror below around 1976 when it was white. Later we painted it gold - now here we are turning it Shabby Vintage White again.
Also a tip for mirrors: you have to ALSO PAINT the inner back circumference of the frame with the same paint several inches from the edge all the way around because after putting the large mirror back in the frame we realized the mirror reflects that area about 1" and if it is dark or another color - it shows that in the reflection. Who would have known?
