Nautical Hanging Mirror

An antique oval mirror found at the thrift store
undergoes a major transformation.


This hanging mirror turned nautical with 
the addition of a rope found on the beach...



I gave the antique mirror a coat of 
Annie Sloan Duck Egg Blue, dark wax, 
then sanded to distress. 

It was then that I saw the mirror begin to transform 
in front of my eyes.  

Nautical... 
it began to take on a coastal flair so 
I added a metal plaque to the bottom of the frame...


and then I added a salty old rope I found on the beach...


It was then I fell in love with the color and the beachy
loveliness of this old mirror...


I had just one problem with this project....


The camera wants to focus on the mirror's reflection...
What do you do with that?? 

99 pictures later I finally got the actual mirror frame
somewhat in focus.

Oh well, the mirror came out awesome!
If you are interested you can find it in my
