I was wasting time on the internet when I came across this website and saw that it had a daily steal feature. Then I clicked on it and a cute mirror was being sold for only $35! At that time, we had just bought a mirror from TJ Maxx for our entryway but I wasn’t 100% satisfied with it. So I convinced Nick to buy it and waited for it to arrive at our house.
It arrived pretty promptly but when we opened it, I wasn’t all that thrilled. I mean, you get what you pay for, and it was just black and a bit blah. Here’s a picture (without the mirror glass) of the mirror and its side panels.
Then, around the same time we got it, I saw this picture via this blog:
I loved this set of mirrors! So pretty and against a gray wall. And it looked similar to our mirror. White. Hmm. White spray paint. I got to spraying and then we tried it on our entryway hall. But it didn’t look right – the mirror was a bit too small for the wall and our mirror from TJ Maxx filled out the space a bit better.
Hey, what about the dining room?
And we decided to hang it diamondly (new word for you) rather than squarely (not a new word but I’m using it differently here).
White spray paint is really magic in a bottle. This looks much better than before and it looks like it cost more than what we paid for it. I saw a mirror that was semi-similar to this and it cost $200. That kind of made my day.
The only problem? I also sprayed the side panels white and I’m not sure what to do with them.
