Works in Progress

Right now I am working on 2 projects...first off I did complete this mirror, which will go over my buffet hutch (more on that piece later)
This is the detail...

It was easy... I primed (zinsser), painted (Benjamin Moore Black Suede) , first taping and spraying the inset with silver spray paint. Then I sanded and distressed the corners, and coated it all with a satin wipe-on poly.

The "buffet", a mid-century dresser, really, that's been in our household for years now, 3 homes, bedrooms, now started like this:
I would like it to look like this: (black top to tie in the black mirror and other black elements in the room)

The other is the cane chairs. Hubs is away, and now's the perfect time to put my plan into action... I want to GLUE patches of the new cane onto the tears... I KNOW it sounds nuts, but I will be painting and distressing them anyway. BTW..hubs was appalled the condition these babies were in-- I want to at least get to the primer stage so when he come back he will see they CAN and WILL be saved!

THESE are my inspiration, wish me luck!
