Decoupaged mirror with wallpaper & Annie Sloan paint

I wanted to achieve the French gild mirror frame look without breaking le bank. This is how I did it:  decoupaged the plain frame with brocade wallpaper (I didn’t like the original paper, so it has gone to good use), then I painted it with Annie Sloan’s chalk paint called ‘Old White’.  I experimented with dark wax but this just made it look ‘old dirty’, so I decided to lightly spray it with sliver paint and then lacquered it to protect it.

I am a little undecided about the final result..

Please have a look around my lovely shop on Etsy where you can buy limited edition prints, camera accessories, notebooks and trays. Mapp of London came about through my love of photography – all the products are either my own photos or designed by me to fulfill my needs as a photographer. I hope you will agree with me that these are unique and lovingly crafted items.
