Beautiful Mirrors

I love beautiful mirrors and have many (probably too many) at home. Here are some I painted and sold last week. I've been stretching my skills and adding a lot of patina to ornate pieces and making old world European finishes. I've been doing a lot of research into casein paints, gesso and achieving authentic looking patina. Having lots of fun with it.

These mirrors are all sold pending pickup but let me know if anything catches your eye and I'll send you the details.

I'm particularly thrilled with the mirror below. It was rather plain - just smooth timber and brown. I added the mouldings and then created a lot of texture in the paintwork and then did a few layers of glazes and waxes to achieve the look.

This beautiful mirror below is just perfect as it is. A bit OTT but who doesn't like a bit of bling in a room. It's huge and in just lovely condition.

My week below last week (and a pair of black beside tables). Such a nice soft palette. The bottom left queen anne bedside table is still available.

  1. All gorgeous. People do like mirrors to reflect more light into a room.
