I have been searching for a perfect "sunburst" mirror like these...
Because our style is kind of vintage/mid-century modern mixed with a little industrial and a little traditional, I thought this would be perfect for our entry way. You always need a mirror when walking in or out of a door. My very favorite is the first one, but the problem is it's about $700. Seriously?! Why are mirrors so stinking expensive?? I found the exact same mirror at ZGallerie, but it was $500, so, not any better. Here's my criteria:
- Sunburst or starburst style
- Leaning more towards silver or no trim at all....we have no gold in our house. Not huge fans :/
- About 24" wide or larger
- under $100 (psssh! ha!)
Y'all know how difficult that is? Target has a few (the last one pictured is from Target) but I'm just not crazy about them. I know I won't be able to find my DREAM mirror in my price range, so I at least need to be happy with what I settle on.
I still need to check with HomeGoods, but today I found this one at Lowe's!
I was super excited about it and almost bought it on the spot, but I want to shop around just a little more to make sure that's the one for us :)
On to the paint department... We could literally spend HOURS there. Today I was after a few things - a) swatches of grey for us to compare and try for our overall interior home color(s); b) a bright aqua for my weekend armoire project; and c) lime green for an accent color in the playroom.
Also, have I mentioned these are my two absolute very favorite colors? In case you didn't already know :)
The green is called "Can't Miss lime" and the aqua, "Bayside". I could literally just drink them up, but I will try to contain myself.
This makes me happy, happy, happy - as Phil Robertson would say. I am really bursting at the seams to get going in our new house!!
