~Fabulous Find: Mirror~

April 29, 2010


This has been my lucky week for fabulous finds. 

I found this fantastic mirror in the clearance section of Homesense for $20.



 It is the perfect addition that will add the touch of glamour for my daughter's room. I wanted a starburst mirror but find this one more original. I love how there is the layering of two mirrors and the overlapping wires that give it the look of a flower. With her walls painted Stonington Gray, a tufted headboard, the mercury glass side lamp along with the thrift store lamp I re-vamped with silver leaf, her room will look elegant and grown-up, very fitting for a girl who is about to turn 16.

 Slowly I am collecting the accessories and furniture needed for her room, I have been enjoying the process and can't wait to put it all together. The challenge is to try to spend as little as possible and so far I have been finding bargains galore!




I have another find for her room that I found on Craigslist yesterday and am picking it up on Sunday which will require a coat of paint. Can't wait to show it to you.

Oh - remember how I was hoping and wanting me some chiang mai dragon fabric? 


Well......

 *sigh* 

I found a store that could order some in but {gulp} the price tag was a bit much, at $256 per yard I think I might just have to win the lottery!

  6. Love the mirror, cant believe you got it so cheap. We all love a good bargain! I have a feeling the sunburst mirror is a bit played out anyways =)

  9. The fabric is on Ebay!! Still not cheap, but cheaper than $256/yd. And there are two cushions for 30BP:
