I didn't have one single mirror on my wall, with the exception of the bathrooms. I see them in stores. I love them on blogs. I was waiting for the right one, right time, right price. I don't know what I was waiting for. I think I was waiting for my walls to be repainted, but I've been waiting on that for a long time. A LONG time.
One of my mommy friends has a big yard sale every summer with her whole family. It's pretty big. I thought I'd go to see what kind of clothes I could score for my daughter. I got some cute stuff last year. I noticed a guy walking around with some big mirrors and thought, Lucky Guy! I missed those. Then he had more mirrors, and I though, Not Fair Lucky Guy! He looked pretty greedy... Then I asked my girlfriend if he was really buying all of them. She laughed and told me he was just setting them out for the sale. So, I bought them. All of them. All 4 lovelies. They are all like 4 or 5 feet by 3 or 4 feet with big frames. Thanks, Lucky Guy!
They all had different gold frames, which don't really go in my house, but I really heart spray paint, and for under $40 for all 4, I figured it was time.
Oh, look, here's one now!
I sprayed it with oil rubbed bronze. That is such a great invention!
Here it is with my Goodwill buffet:
Here's my buffet again, because it makes me happy!
I still want to put something low, like a bench, on the long empty wall in the dining room. My neighbor and I were thinking sconces on either side of the mirror. I'm not loving the table and chairs that are in there now, but I have no plans at this point for changing them. Patience...
This is the other corner of the dining room. Just in case you wondered...
