Nautical Hanging Mirror

6:00:00 AM

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

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

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

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

Nautical! This old mirror took on a coastal flair with the rope and a metal plaque I added to the bottom of the frame.

The old salty old rope I found on the beach was perfect!

I fell in love with the nautical 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.

So much for the photo, the mirror came out awesome!

Sweet update story....
I was contacted by a young teen who thought this would make the perfect gift for his mother. I told him how to purchase the mirror off my Etsy shop and 
he bought it for his Mom.
