I re-styled my family room last week and in the process, was searching for a weathered wood mirror. The ones I found in the stores were over $200 and way out of my budget. However, I already had a mirror that I had purchased from Target years ago. I’m sure you have all seen the standard, big-box store mirrors. They are attractive but kind of blah in style.
My mirror is a good size with a great chunky style frame. But, the frame was not weathered wood. In fact, it wasn’t wood at all but a hard dark plastic frame, just as the one below. It originally cost less than $40.00.I decided to create the weathered wood look with paint.
Using Annie Sloan chalk paint and a brush, I transformed my basic, big box store mirror into a “faux” weathered wood mirror and made a tutorial for you on the process. It is basically layering paint using a dry brush method. The colors used are Coco, Old Ochre and Old White.
