The Antiqued Faux Mirror

I wanted to repurpose a cabinet door from an antique hutch...I cleaned it up, painted the frame with General Finishes Lamp black, and distressed. For the glass I decided to do a antique faux pattern design mirror. 


I first misted with a water vinager mix. Then layed a stencil down. I sprayed Mirror effects spray paint in stenciled area heavily. Waited till dry, and repositioned in other areas doing a lighter spray of mirror effects. I then lightly blotted the water vinager. 

Once it was dry I sprayed a flat black spray paint over the entire back glass to finish off the faux mirror. 

I absolutly love how it turned out, and has become a great piece of art from an old cabinet door!
