Before+After Oak Mirror

Mirror mirror on the wall….our featured before + after today is from another local Stylish patina customer in Reston Virginia! She had a dated oat mirror she was looking to breath new life into.  Here is what she had to say ..

“I went to my first Annie Sloan workshop in Leesburg several years ago and have been slowly experimenting with the paints and projects. I live in Reston and love the fact that I can drop into Stylish Patina any time. Love the tips they provide for us novices, too!”

And then …..

 My friend suggested painting it and I loved the idea. It’s now one of my favorite pieces in the family room. I used the Barcelona Orange as a base, Olive as the top coat and then carefully rubbed away enough of the Olive for the fabulous Barcelona Orange to peek through. Lovely!
