I was DETERMINED to make this mirror! I just loved it the moment I saw it. It fit my style and furnishing so well. The one in the tutorial uses rubbed oil bronze paint. That stuff is wonderful! However, it wouldn't really go with my black wrought iron bedroom furniture. So I made mine painted black and used silver rosettes. I have quite a few silver accent pieces in my bedroom. It really turned out beautiful. I hope you will give it a try yourself!
Go for it! I got the wood trim at a place called ReStore. It is discounted building material. It is owned by Goodwill. I got 8ft trim pieces for only 1.00 each! So the total price was 57.00 but seeing it hanging on my wall, knowing I made it myself.....PRICELESS!
Have a great day and make something beautiful!
