I decided that the mirror needed more that where I stopped yesterday.
So I kept playing today. A layer of dark walnut stain applied and wiped off and a quick rub with some sand paper and I am quite happy with the results.
So now I need to paint the wall I want to hang it on. Paint the dresser it is going to hang above and put the whole thing together. I think I might hang it with a ribbon. I kinda like this one.
