she actually requested that i finish the mirror in the same finish as my "from the sea" coffee table that i made a few months ago! i love having creative clients :)

  3. Kristen: Can you tell me how you did the chair with the cane seat? I have chairs that I would like to paint and I don't know how to protect the cane seating from the paint! When you have time, can you email me with how you solve this and did such a great job? gloria.vincent@yahoo.com
    Thank you and thanks for sharing!!
    Best regards,
    Gloria

  4. Can you tell me how you did the mirror? I have almost the exact same one and am looking to do a cream/neutral finish. Love how the dark look comes through.

    Thanks!
