So I was hating our long mirror. It functioned fine: didn't distort the figure in any way and was useful in ensuring the bottom half was dressed in a vaguely adequate way. BUT it was a horrible timber veneer. Have had it for years and never really enjoyed looking at it. So ... I got out the silver paint again. You'll be pleased to know that I didn't take any before shots as I was too eager to attack it with some paint! So here it is primed.
And ta da! Here is the result ...
While it looks a lot better than it did before and now matches the mirror on the mantel that I painted silver, it still seems lacking in something. I had thought about doing a decorative pattern in fine black paint around the top sides but as I've never done that before am not sure that's such a good idea.
Any suggestions? Or am I better off leaving as is?
