This was the mirror before I refinished it. All I did was lightly sand a few dings on the edges and then put one coat of Sherwin-Williams Wood Classics Oil Stain tinted to the color Paprika. I applied the stain with a brush, one side at a time, and then went back over it with a soft dry brush, wiping the excess on a rag. It removed enough stain so I can still see the wood. That’s it. Easy-Peasy.
