This late 1800's mirror had a lot of issues, but also had a lot going for it.
It hung in storage for a lot of years and just kept deteriorating.
Well ... let me tell you ... after seeing what that wall of mirrors would be reflecting, I quickly changed my mind about a full wall of mirrors. It is the wall directly across from the walk-in shower ... and you know the "rest-of-the-story".
I just filled in the empty spaces with Hard as Nails wood putty.
Sanded it to the shape as best I could ...
painted and antiqued it and called it good.
I ended up painting it with Behr, Spanish sand, the same color as the wall and antiqued it with Min-wax stain to age it.
Love the cut-etched arch.
A paper with French script that fills in the dark area of silver loss did not turn out exactly as planned and that will likely be changed.
I hung it high enough so it mirrors just the head and shoulders of the person getting out of the shower.
And here it is hanging on the planked wall in our newly remodeled bathroom. I am standing in the shower but shooting at a angle so you can't see me.
We are finished with this part of bath remodel ...
except for the barn door which will be hung when the vanity room is redecorated.
I had hoped to get the vanity area done before I did these reveals, but just not happening. Life kinda got in the way.
