How was your weekend? I wanted to share with you how my bedroom mirror project I started last week here:

Ended up turning out. I purchased more of the Chalk Paint® (ASCP) Provence paint to finish the job:

I loved the color of the Provence, but I decided that I wanted something a little lighter in color. I tried mixing different parts of the Chalk Paint® Provence with Chalk Paint® Old White until I found the perfect color mixture:

The mixture I was happy with was with one part Provence to three parts Old White. Perfect! See how nice it works with my bedroom fabric?:

Love it. My original plan was to rub some of the color Chalk Paint® Aubusson Blue over the finish to bring in some of the dark blue of the fabric, but I just wasn’t loving it:

I like the clean look better, don’t you? It was easy to paint over the blue. You have to experiment and try different techniques, right? So after one coat of the mixed paint, I rubbed on the Clear Wax, waited 24 hours to dry and then buffed to a beautiful shine:

I’m really happy with it! The lighter color works so much better in the room instead of the Chalk Paint® Antibes. The Magic of Paint! Still a few more projects, but I love how the bedroom is all coming together:

I have this on my husband’s bedside table:

A different way to display using books slid sideways as pedestals. Isn’t the house and mushroom so cute? There is a local store here in North Conway, NH where these little houses are made individually by special, disabled adults. They are all so sweet that I can never make up my mind which to buy!

I hope you enjoyed my mirror redesign project. So easy to do and it really is perfect!
