I was flipping through the latest addition of the Restoration Hardware Catalogue recently, and I happened across this picture here.
I loved the matte black cabinets and the distressing. I never seem to paint anything black, and when I picked up this great dresser set with two gorgeous mirrors I knew I was going to paint the mirrors black.
They are so beautiful and tall and fairly contemporary given that they are vintage.
I sanded them down gently as I still wanted the wood stain to show through once I distressed them.
I painted everything matte black, and then use course grit sand paper to sand all of the edges (this was the most time consuming part). I then sealed everything with wax.
I love how they turned out. They would look great above his and her bathroom sinks. I wish I had a pair of those to hang them above for me.
