Color for the beveled mirror frame in the updated guest bath?

I have purchased (at consignment store) the mirror to go above the vanity with black granite top and brushed nickel fixtures. I might paint the mirror frame black, or a darker shade of the Rainwashed S-W 6211 walls or the accent colors I have used throughout the house, green apple or a yellow green, or leave it light natural wood. Your choice?
Darker aqua
Natural wood

I would stain it to match the vanity

The mirror frame has already been finished with a clear finish over the wood. That is why I was thinking to paint it.

You've come this far, are you sure this is the right mirror? If you can't match the wood, why not a try a frame-less, interesting edged mirror like this one I saw in the Related Discussions images on the right of my screen. (Not sure if you see the same thing, so here is the link,

I would paint the frame with metallic paint to match the color of the faucets. Make a scroll, leaf or whatever design with white glue. Let it dry then paint the whole thing with silver metallic paint. When that is dry wipe a dark glaze over it. The glaze will collect on the patterns you made. The finished effect will be that of an expensive metal frame.

I think you need a larger mirror. It should cover almost the entire space above the vanity (side to side) and from the splash to the lights. You might call a glass shop and have one cut to size. A frameless is very inexpensive. Then you can add trim to "frame" the mirror if ou want that look.

THX to all. Artperson, I might try your suggested project. I had already bought some silver metalic paint.
Amy, I took out the original 1970s mirror that covered the entire wall. I wonder if they could cut my mirror to size.

They can recur your existing mirror.
