I'd been fawning over this octogon mirror from RH for a while now. It's simple and classic without a lot of fluff. But I just couldn't convince myself or even consider asking the hubs about this purchase, the price was way of my price range.
Target also had a few options for a while, but they were pretty small, coming in at less than 20" in diameter. I wanted mine to be pretty substantial so it wouldn't look like a ship's porthole.
So you can imagine how excited I was while perusing my local HomeGoods yesterday and spied this baby in the mirror section. Hello lover! And for a only $70, it was a steal compared to the RH mirror. I was a little bummed that it was painted white and distressed, it's a little country cottage for my style but that can always be changed later.
I used the mirror in the living room near the door, switching out the Cozamia print I originally had up. Once I started moving things around I realized I didn't mind the white distressed paint. It actually contrasts nicely with the dark console. I tried a few different looks, switching out pictures and plants. The only one I couldn't decide on was the lamp shade. What do we think...
In the end, I went with the white shade. I'm really happy with the size of the mirror, it's bigger than the one I kept thinking of getting at Target, but definitely wouldn't have made me happy in the end. It's a testament to waiting it out sometimes.
I'm back to school this week and surprisingly I'm happy about that, I kinda missed it. Ask me in another six weeks, I may have a different answer for you. Happy hump day peeps.
