Great price!

Babs said...

Can't wait to see what color you paint it. I have a thrifted mirror I want to paint but can't decide what color.
It'll probably be off-white. :)

Hi Linda,
Ooh I love your mirror and can't wait to see it painted. You are probably going to paint it the old white.

We have a shop in my area that sells AS chalk paint and I'm doing a post about it Sunday night. She also ships it at a really low price.
I'll be telling all on Saturday or Sunday.

I can't wait to see how your mirror comes out ~ It is a wonderful shape!
Hmmmmm maybe Paris Grey or Old White or a combination of both :)

Neat find, Linda! Maybe off-white of duck-egg blue.

Ricki Treleaven said...

Nice mirror. I like the shape! IDK what color....probably greige because I am seeing it everywhere.

Low Tide High Style said...

I can't wait to see how it turns out! And my coffee table has been begging me to paint it for a long time now...maybe I should listen up and just do it! ;-)

Linda you are a perfect dealer for Annie Sloan Paint, I think you would sell tons of it with all of your examples. I would say Louis Blue!

It's a great shape. My guess is duck egg! I should really try some of that paint.

No, mine don't talk. I just sense their feelings. Like E.S.P. :) Andrea @ townandprairie

Your mirror has a beautiful shape to it! Can't wait to see that color you've chosen. Fondly, Susie

I'll guess a gorgeous coral color. I'm in love with that and turquoise! Thanks for stopping by! Heather @simplycottagelove

Melissah said...

Grey for a Scandinavian look or white for a beach cottage feel.
Good luck!

Hmm, maybe the duck egg blue! It will be gorgeous no matter what you do to it. I'm really looking forward to receiving my chalk paint...I'm picking out my first candidates already.

Rustique Gal said...

OOH, I love her. I have a sweet french style table calling me from the shed room. I'm hearing more and more about this chalk paint and wax. Can't wait to see your results. Have fun!

Megan Gunyan said...

Great lines on the mirror! I'm guessing duck egg blue? :) It will look great, no matter what you decide!
