Dresser mirror painting project

I purchased my bedroom dresser about five years ago from Craigslist.  It didn't come with an attached mirror, but I've always thought that if I found the right mirror on Craigslist, I could complete my vision for this furniture piece.  I finally found it!  It's just the right size, delightfully vintage and imperfect, but there is just one problem:  it's not painted white.  Although it sometimes breaks my heart to paint over beautiful solid wood furniture, I decided to soldier on.

Taping the mirror will ensure minimal paint is left on the mirror surface.

Two+ coats of paint, followed by a light sanding all over then distressing on the edges and two coats of Annie Sloan clear wax.
