When our friend Stacey of Faux Studio Designs and I finally discovered the Paris flea markets the day of shopping became a recipe for fun and mischief.

One of the markets was full of Trumeau mirrors in every shape and size. It was love at first sight but, the size was more than our carry-on luggage could handle.

Stacey is also one of our Efex stockists and loves antique embellishments just like us! We were thrilled when we found M, our newest Efex moulding and since the Trumeau stall was right next door the perfect project came to mind pretty quickly.


When it comes to Trumeau mirrors the bigger the better. My husband made the first one for a project in Rhode Island last summer. This fall we finally made a trumeau for our home in Maine.You can make one in any shape or size to fit your home using this DIY tutorial as a guide.

 The top of the mirror is trimmed in Efex trim T10, with simple T9s along all four sides.

For painting enter French Linen a favorite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® color.  I love this color, a warm, taupey-grey that fits in perfectly with our French-nautical style.

And there she is, M1 the jewel that started this whole project, where she was always meant to be.

This makeover certainly adds a bit of Parisian glamor to the Maine County Home.

For those details on how we made the mirror see our DIY post. For other great trumeau post see Virginia and Stacey and their take on a trumeau.
