I have this plane jane (no offense jane) large standard mirror in my master bathroom. Ever since I saw The Nester hang a mirror over a mirror, I've been hunting for a large round one to hang over the mirror I have.
But those suckers are expensive.
But at a garage sale the other day, I found this mirror for TEN BUCKS. It was pretty ornate and gaudy gold, but it had promise. Plus, did I mention TEN BUCKS?
(here it is leaning casually against my bathroom mirror)
(do you know HOW HARD it is to take a picture of a mirror without also capturing a body part?)
I debated on paint color. Initially I thought ivory, but my cabinets are white, so I went with chocolate spray paint since I have a lot of bronze accents. I taped off the glass with the comic section, so I could multi task and read the funnies:
I found this fancy hook at Hobby Lobby for $3 and my hubby hung wire from the back of the mirror to the hook. Don't you like the color better now?
In order to hide the wire, I just tucked some pretty ribbon around it:
I really love the way it turned out. The mirror makes my whole bathroom look unique!
(I took this picture standing on the corner of the tub. On my tippy toes. But I'm not going to tell you how many retakes there were!)
