Trumeau Mirror

I have long dreamed of having a real antique trumeau mirror but the prices just keep me away.  I stumbled upon this beauty one day and knew it was for me.



I believe that this was set on top of a dresser or something because of the bottom of it.  I love everything but the colors.  I wanted an opportunity to try out my ASCP French Linen.  This was the perfect time.

I gave it 2 coats of French Linen followed with dry brushing on ASCP Old White.  It now sits on display above my fireplace.  My urns are holding some fake greenery.  I know it is a no-no according to decorators, but I just can't seem to keep anything green alive for long.  I really like the punch of green.
 



Isn't it lovely?!  Here take a look at the details.

    1. I just barely dipped the brush in and dried it a little bit on a paper towel then lightly brushed it on. Hope that helps.
