Mirror from CL with chipped frame

I brought this mirror for $45 off Craig's List. The young woman who was selling it accidentally chipped it when bringing it down to the lobby, so she reduced the price.

Two corners were chipped - I used joint compound to build them up:

Couldn't quite get the paint to match, but no one has noticed.

Thank you both for the compliments. It took me a while to get up the nerve to tackle it. Matching the paint color turned out to be the hardest part.
