Up-Cycling a Mirror

I started a project today finally..... a mirror that I want to stand on the top of the tv entertainment centre between my collection of churchy birdhouses. It was a pale blue and I am painting it Bahama blue.  Dark brown dry brush over the blue and finish with a couple coats of varathane.
Step 1 - Base coat with acrylic paint let dry
Step 2 - Dry brush a dark umber brown acrylic paint over the blue until  you achieve the most pleasing effect possible and let dry
Step 3 - Brush on 2 coats of Diamond Coat Varathane (my personal favorite for almost everything including all the windows in the new house)

Respect... Relax... Enjoy... Dorri
