It's Contagious

Help!!! It's contagious and there's no cure for it!  Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Makeover Fever!  I've caught it!  Symptoms: paint everything in sight, sand it, wax it, and show it off!  Yep, it's a new condition with no cure. 

I bought this mirror several years ago at a consignment shop.  I don't remember the price, but if you know me, you know it was a bargain!  If it's not, it doesn't come home with me!  It hung in the guest room for some time, then I moved it to the guest bath where it hung until Sunday. 

Excuse the blurry picture, but you can see the carving at the top. 

Here it is, ready to be painted.

I wiped off the dust and started painting with ASCP Olde White.

  I put the paint on fairly thick with a sponge applicator, pushing down to get it into the carving.  After allowing about an hour for it to dry, I sanded the entire frame, down to the black paint along the edges.  Then I lightly waxed it with dark wax, then wiped it off really well.  
I'm in love!!! 

I decided it would look good above the pedestal sink in the powder room, so I switched the one that was in the powder room to the guest bath.

Um Hmmmm.....looking good.

It looks so much better painted white.  

I shopped the house for other white accessories to add to the powder room.

Below is a shelving unit in the powder room.....considering painting it white, but I do like the contrast.

What do you think?  Do you like this makeover?
 I do!!!   Love me some ASCP!!!
