A Chippendale Mirror - Updated!

I bought this Chippendale Mirror at the auction the other night.  I have a smaller one in my home and love the shape and detail on the top, but never wanted to paint mine - even though I could always imagine how I would paint it.  So when they began to auction off this one, I raised my bidding card and kept it up in the air until I heard "SOLD"!

It's a beauty:

A few days later, this is how it turned out:

A little gold trim and some soft colors....

...and of course a little black and white...

...a little sponging and antiquing...

And now she is ready for Craigs List!

  3. Hi Patti,
    How cute and looks like it's already sold!
    Great job.


  4. What a beauty! I'll bet someone snatches her up very, very quickly!


  5. How pretty your find turned out! I've always wanted to attend an auction , but have never taken the initiative. I need to change that soon, who knows what treasures there are out there.

  6. How sweet is that? You have really transformed this beauty into something fabulous.

  7. Lucky, Debbie! Wish I lived nearby to take advantage of your makeovers. This is a fabulous piece! ~ Sarah

  8. Way cool Patti! I adore it, so you never said if you were keeping it or where you are putting it in your home. Come by and check out my newly painted dining room. I'll be showing the kitchen as soon as I get the valances made this week.

  9. Great job, Patti! I'm sure it will go fast, too!

  10. Patti, I love this! Beautiful job!
