I looked at this mirror and also a shelf in our powder room. You can see the shelf in the reflection of the mirror! Then I decided I had too much black in this little room! I sometimes get carried away when I do something new! So I took them off the wall and out to the garage!
I put the crackle on both the mirror and the shelf. Later I came out and added the tan paint to the mirror and mustard gold to the shelf. Well, needless to say the smaller items are, the harder they are to paint with the crackle! I wasn't happy with them and started touching them up after they dried. Then I put some gel stain to help tone down the colors and to help hide the "imperfections".
I think they ended up looking pretty good! At least there is more color than just black in that room and I made sure those colors were offset in other accessories so they at least look like they belong!!
Later this week I will post this little bathroom. It is quite small but I think kind of cute with a reminiscence of my dad....
FOR NOW I AM DONE WITH THE CRACKLE! It is just hard to do unless you have a straight flat surface that you can roll on the paint. There is no fixing once you touch it with paint!! I am sure I will be messing with it sooner just to figure out the best way to use it!!
