I finally had an idea I felt was worth pursuing for repainting this mirror frame. You remember it from the BIG bedroom redecoration post, right? This photo will refresh your memory.

I just couldn't get excited about doing a copper finish. Not because I don't love copper, but it just seemed like it would be so match-y as to be too unsophisticated, even for our old west whorehouse-style boudoir.
So I decided to try... wait for it... faux bois. I went in accepting that I may not like it and may have to start all over, but I did like it. I like how it ties in with the dresser's wood tones and stopped earlier in the process than I had originally planned.

I did two other mirror frames at the same time, each a little different, that you'll see later.
