So last weekend I went a little nuts with the spray paint…..and it kind of bled over to this weekend. Seriously, take the spray can out of my hand.

Here is where I left off……
This used to be a mirror and I decided to change it. of course I decided to change it……
I spray painted the backing wood a nice chrome and then went about my business with the gold leaf. Say What? Yup – gold leaf.
That milky white stuff in the picture above is the adhesive……let it set and then start applying your gold leaf.
I got myself all gilded up….on accident. apparently there are people out there who rock at this and don’t make a serious mess……but I am NOT one of them.
I layered in white, grey, various shades of blue and kept working it until I was happy with the result.
I like how it turned out……and I put it up in the bedroom. Turns out I must have unconsciously used that mirror…..as I have been glancing at it non-stop and being surprised that it wasn’t my reflection.
Remember when I said I couldn’t stop spray painting stuff?
