When I saw the announcement for this Fall’s Pinterest Challenge I knew exactly what I wanted to do.
I’m a few days late joining in but had some hurricane-related power issues to work through that delayed my joining the party. Better late than never, right?!
I’d seen these DIY gilded frames on Jenny’s blog a few weeks ago and pinned the idea thinking it was a great technique for faking an antique gold finish. I’d also recently seen this gorgeous mirror from Z Gallerie in an antique gold finish.
I had plans to move our current entryway mirror upstairs to replace one that fell and shattered into a thousand tiny pieces over the summer and this Z Gallerie beauty was exactly what I wanted to put in its place in the front hallway.
Before I started saving up for this one, I did what I usually do – took a swing through Home Goods looking for a similar product. And after some digging in the mirrors department I found this gem.
Here’s a look at the before and after entryway space.
For a fraction of the cost of the Z Gallerie piece, I couldn’t be more thrilled with my new mirror. And I sure love having this antique gold technique to add to my repertoire!
