This piece originated as an antique dresser mirror from a very old set that I acquired a few years back. The dresser was too defunct to fix, but I kept the mirror and bed. The silvering on the mirror was pretty bad, and when the glass eventually cracked I held on to the frame, knowing it would serve some other purpose (other than an omen of bad luck for the next 7 years)!
I lightly sanded it and sprayed on several coats of heirloom white. Once dry, I roughed up the edges to highlight the details....and because I simply like that look. I covered a large bulletin board with some quilt batting and pretty toile fabric before attaching the original mirror backing.
The fabric is so sweet I almost hate to cover it with anything!
