Painted mirror frames

The large mirror in my hallway of mirrors came from a charity shop for a few quid. It was garish gold with a hideous cardboard picture of a cottage stapled into the back. I pulled that out and gave the plastic  frame a good scrub in the bath.

I stippled on a dark grey chalk paint then rubbed over it with a candle followed by two paler colours in emulsion with less coverage.

Then I stippled  on some dark wax, pushing it into all the nooks and crannies, let it dry and buffed if off.
