Weathered Wood Makeover Paint Application
I’ve had this dresser in my garage for a few months now. You can see it hiding behind the Limestone Chest.
It is finally getting its turn! I’m thinking of giving it a huge transformation and applying a weathered wood finish. Here is the process below. I’ll post updates 🙂
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.

Looks great. And exactly like wood. Very creative
It looks fantastic.
I liked this instructional video. II like to see blah, cheap things (plastic frame) turn into cool finishes. Thank you for sharing,
Great tutorial and you make it look so simple. I have a painting with a frame that is boring brown and I think this would be a great process to give it a little more interest. I love your site and the furniture you give a beautiful new life.
Love it!!! You did a great job!
