Antique Turquoise Chalk Paint Mirrors

Turquoise is a very popular colour - here's a couple of mirrors that have been given a chalk paint do-over.

I see quite a few of these convex plaster mirrors - they're great for a shabby-job.  This one's been painted with a mix of Autentico's two chalk paints - Antique Turquoise and Troubled Waters - then once dry, the antique gold from the mirror's been rubbed through.

This second mirror has been salvaged from an old dresser.  Painted in an undercoat of red chalk paint, Antique Turquoise has been added over the top.  

A nice oval mirror with some patina that adds beautifully to the overall look.

With a little light sanding, the red comes through, would look lovely in a decorative hall of mirrors.
