Mirror - Gold glitz to faux whitewashed wood

I picked up this sweet vintage round mirror with floral themed frame locally, along with a small cupboard for a just $30.

I liked it's feminine style for the bedroom but was not so in love with the gold paint finish! I wanted to paint it, but also wanted some depth in the finish to make the faux carved detail stand out. So I experimented and found a lovely effect that simulated white washed wood so it actually looked like it was real carving. Bonus!

French Provincial Style - Bedroom Sideboard

This gorgeous feminine sideboard has been waiting a long time for it's finishing touches.

Purchased 3 years ago for $50 off Gumtree it had to wait for our farmhouse to be finished first, then wait in line for other pieces to be finished that were in the main living areas. It made it into the bedroom last Christmas but only a few months ago did I finish white waxing it!
