Well, the new Pottery Barn catalog has arrived!
As I flipped through the pages wishing I could afford everything, I came across this picture.
How could you not love Pottery Barn?
Now, look past the beautiful centerpiece on the coffee table. And past the inviting white couch.
Do you see the mirrors?
Yup, these ones…
The wooden one is listed and you can order it, but the gold one is no where to be found in the magazine.
But that didn’t stop me! I instantly realized I had almost the exact same frame in my stash. (I think the frame came from Michael’s).
I haven’t known what to do with this frame so it’s just sat there for years. But not anymore!
I measured the frame and assumed that any hardware store that carries vanity mirrors would come in this standard size. You can purchase a surprising assortment of bathroom vanity mirrors and they are not expensive at all.
And I was right!
It’s got beveled edges, but I figured it would still look great anyway.
I decided to go extra super fancy when I mounted it in my frame.
Nothing works as great as a roll of Duct Tape!
A Pottery Barn inspired mirror.
It sat on top of my piano for a few days, but I finally hung it.
I may rotate it and set it off to the side like Pottery Barn did. I’m not sure.
And also the verdict is still out on the guitars. I may relocate those to my son’s room. The plan initially was to make this room a “music room” and hang all our guitars on the wall – I’ve got the two kid ones hung and now I have 5 more regular gee-tars I need to put up.
But now I don’t know if I like the guitars.
But I do love the mirror!
Oh, and don’t worry, my antique piano I inherited from my mom who got it from her mom that was built in 1905 will be getting a face lift soon.
Okay, so pretty much just ignore everything in this picture except for the Pottery Barn inspired mirror!
I love when I can copy something out of a catalog and it turns out great.
