A Whimsical Makeover - The Big Ugly Mirror Edition

 I purchased this mirror a few weeks ago and a garage sale and I got really great deal. I was a bit unsure of how I wanted to paint it (probably Duck Egg) but I knew it needed to be painted. It was definitely not my style. It was dark and obnoxious.
I really enjoyed the dainty features so I thought I would play them up. I decided to avoid the Duck Egg and go for something a bit more unexpected. So I chose the Arles and Old Ochre.
Here is how it turned out:
 I girled it up a bit with the paint technique but then destressed to add a bit more detail. I love it!! Sorry about my staging again. I am having a difficult time taking photos of my larger stuff at my house right now. The light never seems to be right.
 On the positive side of things...You get a glimps of Carter's Cottage in the reflection.  :)
Hope you enjoyed my mirror. I hope to repost it again soon with some different staging.
