I found a wooden applique at Menards the other day and thought it would be the perfect size to add to our mirror in our bedroom. The mirror did start out a very dark walnut color before a I painted it black a few years ago.
I used General Finishes gel stain in Brown Mahogany and then sprayed a sealer over it once it dried. I used a quick setting glue called Titebond instant bond wood adhesive to apply it to the mirror. It sets up in 5 seconds so you don't have much time for alignment.
You can see HERE how the desk/dresser started before I painted them.
