Mirror makeover

I love mirrors.  This gorgeous old mirror was abandoned and left for trash. On the back of the mirror it says Nov 1944.

It is missing part of the accent on the top left corner, but It is still beautiful.
It had a couple clumps of dried spackle on it.  I carefully scraped that off.
I painted it in a dark grey first, then painted a second coat of watered down white paint.  After it was wiped down a little, this is the finish I got.
I like how the colors bring out all the detail and add a little antique charm.
