Mini Farmhouse Style Makeover Entryway Walls and Mirror

I blame it on the Covid and being bored in the house, in the house bored!
My love of painting was the first thing I thought of when we were all asked to go into isolation. I raced out to Bunnings and grabbed two extra large tins of white paint. I figured we didn't know how long this whole thing could last and so I wanted enough to keep me busy.  (I got the living room, dining room, entryway and hall done. Not too bad.) Here is the entryway. I used British Paints Clean and Protect Low Sheen untinted white which they officially call Love Note White. It replaced the Dulux Limed White Quarter.  I also gave the wainscotting and trims a refresh with British Paints H2O Semi Gloss White. Next, I repainted my entryway mirror! 
Here is what it looked like before. I liked it but it was only a matter of time before it got painted, right hubby? I saw a similar mirror on Pinterest painted a distressed white and knew that was what I wanted. This time I blame Pinterest. Too many ideas and inspiration. 
 I also raised the mirror up higher on the wall. I think it looks better a bit higher and gives me more space on the entry table. 
 The colour paint I used on the mirror was Dulux Whisper White for some contrast to the walls. It's a very pretty slightly creamy shade of white. I was able to get a small premixed sample pot which was more than enough to complete the mirror frame. Then I used 120 grit sandpaper to distress some of the edges. 
 That little table didn't get away without a refresh either. I'll be sharing it shortly.
