A Wicker Mirror Makeover

My friend Cindy and I found a great mirror at Encore Resale  for her daughter’s apartment. The original color was a light pink with light blue trim.  Not a good color for today’s world, but at $39 it was a great price and the mirror and wicker were in great shape!  Armed with several different choices of Missouri Limestone Paint, we color-coordinated it with her bedspread.  “Trading Post” turned out to be the perfect color and we dry-brushed distressed it with just a little bit of “Rural America”.  I actually had an empty jar of Rural America that still had some dried color in it.  We added a little water, stirred it up, and it worked perfectly, giving us just the right amount of paint we needed for distressing. This jar was definitely good to the very last drop!
