How-to:
A fleur-de-lis inspired the elegant embellishment for this frameless bevelled mirror. Print template and trace motif onto wall at top and bottom of mirror; paint design using small artist’s brush. When dry, add white highlights and darker shading lines as shown. Hand-paint lines to almost join top and bottom motifs and complete frame, if desired. Use a clean damp rag to wipe away any errors as you go. Don’t worry if lines aren’t straight – imperfection lends character.
