Yes, That Is A New Mirror

You guys are so observant.  I love it when you notice all the details.  After the home tour a couple of weeks ago, several asked if this wasn't a new mirror for the bathroom.  (You can still see all of the homes that were on tour, just click on the pic on my sidebar.)

Pin it

Yes, it is.  It's one I found at Ross for $24.99 and I loved how the gold was done in almost a linen like texture and the dark wood complimented the vanity.  Secondly, it is bigger than the one I had, so it is a better size.

This is the previous one I had that I painted gold - - -

Pin it

then I did a spatter of walnut stain to give it some character.  It really does look ok, but I like the other one so much better and the size is better too.

It's not ornate like I was originally looking for, but it really is pretty.

The dark around the edges compliments the picture frame really well.

For $24.95, I have a bargain and a great looking mirror that works really well.

Have you found any great bargains lately?

  26. Hi Marty! Great mirror. Looks beautiful in your bathroom.
