Painting Day 2

It has taken awhile to get this mirror repainted. I keep getting streaky lines with the paint brush. I love the paint though. I picked it up at RONA. Its apparently new there, and is SICO Classic.

Here is the sequence of this mirror. I did like the blue color but that isn't a popular resell color so I tried dry brush and liked it - but not quite enough. So I added Polar Ice. It was the closest color to Antique White I could find. I forgot to take a photo of the finished mirror and so I added one from a booth photo (color not true to actual paint color).

  2. Amazing what a little paint can do! These all look great, Joy. Anyone would like to have them in their home.

  3. Hi Colleen. Thanks for the kind comments. I surely loved doing the work. Just waiting for another sunny, not too windy day to start another group. I love make collages (Picnik) and when I get another group of shots I like I will likely 'change' again.

  5. Hello Joy,
    Your mirror looks great! I haven't done any painting since last Fall because of the weather. We don't have a garage so I always have to rely on warm weather before I can paint outdoors any larger items. I have some dining room chairs which I want to paint white. I'm debating whether to do them myself or take them to Spray All and get them done there. A lot depends on cost of course. I have always done my own painting in the past but I find doing it myself takes so much out of me now.
    I'm glad you enjoy it and you are doing a wonderful job too! Thanks for stopping by the other day for tea. Hope your week is going well.

    Blessings,
    Sandi

  6. Hi Sandi; I know what you mean about the weather. One day only for painting in April. I'm heading to Alberta tomorrow early, my darling Aunt passed away at 93. My sister and I are taking our Dad (90 1/2) and he is taking part in the service, a lesson and homily. He is a retired minister. This has been pretty tough for him, they talked twice every day and he was able to say goodbye the morning of the day she died because her grandson, bless him, had a cell phone and set it up from the hospital. She was able to stay home until the last 36 hours. That was her wish and her family worked very hard and made it happen.
