Syroco mirror transformed

We’ve all seen those syroco mirrors at thrift stores. I love their ornate swirls but not the gaudy gold they typically come in. So, I decided to buy one very cheap and make it a little more interesting…and white.

First, I removed the heavy mirror, then spray painted it London Grey.

Next I went over it with white gesso, leaving parts of the grey showing through and adding a little roughness to the texture. Once I got it to the point I liked the look, I sealed it with spray sealer, and reattached the mirror. Here’s the final result. Really simple!
