This is my inspiration picture.
This is the mirror I have my eye on. I love this shape and I think it will be perfect for my room. The mirror is from Classy Mirrors and is $162.00 It is 26"wide x 36" high, so just the perfect size for the vanity. While this is not an expensive mirror, this would be my big splurge for this redo.
Then I found this frame at Hobby Lobby. $79.99 and with 50% off,= $40. It is 28 x 36, so a little bit larger than the current mirror I have. I already have the sheet mirror I took down from this space, and to have it cut to fit the frame is only $10. I think this is going to win out. $50 versus $162.
Not sure if the one above is way too much for the bathroom, so I might try my hand at gilding the mirror I already have. It is a nice heavy wood one and would look fabulous if it was antique gold. It measures 26 x 32. I already have some gilders paste and I can buy a pack of gold leaf really cheap, so I might be able to rehab the one I have for about $15. (Yes, I am definitley taking the medecine cabinet out and patching the hole with sheetrock so it matches the wall. Ok, ladies, give me some input. Which way to go with the mirror? I want this to look elegant, not cheap or like a bordello.
That's a total of $331.95 if I go with the scroll mirror, or a total of $221.95 if I go with the rectangle mirror. If I can gold leaf the mirror I have, then I can come in around$180. I was hoping to do everything for around $200, so I am pushing it really close. I'm having a hard time trying to convince myself the scroll mirror is worth $110 more than the rectangle, plus it just might be too much for the bathroom anyway.. I have several accessories that I can repurpose, so that will help with the total cost.
Remember, this is my builder basic bathroom that I am working with. I have some fabulous artwork that is being reframed, so I think this room will look totally different with some elegant accessories.
