This window frame came out of the childhood home of a friend. I feel very honored to have it.
No sanding, no priming just painting! I used 1 coat of ASCP in Graphite and touched up areas that needed a little more paint.
After the paint dried, I used AS Dark Soft Wax and applied it liberally all over the mirror. When the wax was dry, I rubbed it to remove the excess.
Then the artistic process began… a little dab of Valspar antiquing glaze in Asphaltum, sanding, and more glaze and more Dark Wax and more AS Paint. Until it “felt” right. Then a final coat of AS Clear Soft Wax was applied, dried and buffed to a lovely subdued finish.
I was very pleased with the red paint that showed up in the “worn” places. I love new color! The mirror looks dramatic in a soft worn way!
These images were also pinned to MUDROOM IDEAS (click on “mudroom”) on Pinterest giving me an on-line design board to work from!
Keep posted as I pull this mudroom together to be as updated and fresh as my new kitchen.
I know that you have been patiently (hopefully) waiting for the kitchen reveal… I can’t wait to show you!!!!!! I just have to finish the bar stools and then it will be ready! Thanks for hanging in there with me!
