Painting the old damaged mirror

image

This old family mirror was quite damaged. Some of the gold and pieces of old plaster were long gone, and it was looking battered.
Superman had bought plaster and a little pot of gold to take a shot at an amateur yet proper restoration.
The missing plaster was replaced and molded manually… And then we changed our mind on the gold and decided to use some left over gris zinc paint from Leroy Merlin.
I’m happy with the result.
On this one, I think a proper restoration could not have suffered our amateur skills!
This was a year ago, but a post on “Our French Oasis” blog just reminded me of this!
Finding a battered treasure, and deciding what to do with it , and then actually doing it (my weakness definitely), is an interesting journey, every time.
