Psst. Have you hear about General Finishes Design Challenge. Efex is proud to be a sponsor of the challenge that started on July 4th and will run through July 25th.
To celebrate this fun contest Lisa at General Finishes has done this wonderful Trumeau Mirror that we are thrilled to share with you today. The steps are easy and the result is drop dead gorgeous.
Here is the step by step instructions.
1- Prime with General Finishes Stain Blocking Primer.

3- Apply Contact Cement to board and Efex Molding, allow to dry 15 minutes. Place Efex Molding to traced area, press lightly and allow to dry.
4- Base coat with General Finishes Limestone Chalk Style Paint.
5- Add GF Limestone, Bone White and Empire Gray Chalk Style Paint to plate next to each other and randomly apply to mirror, in criss-cross fashion. Allow to dry.
