A New Mirror and a Feature

First of all, I want to thank Beckie of Infarrantly Creative and Knock Off Decor for featuring my DIY Restoration Hardware Inspired Rolling Cart today. It was a total surprise when she contacted me last week to let me know she was going to share my cart! Click HERE to see it on her blog. Thank you again, Beckie! 

Okay, now for the new mirror. I've been looking for a new mirror for my dining room for weeks and weeks. I finally found this one and am so happy with it!




For comparison, here's how it looked BEFORE with the trio of sunburst mirrors...


And again, the AFTER with the new clover mirror...



I love my plate wall in here, but ever since I added the sunburst mirrors on the opposite wall, I thought it was too many circles, too close together. So, I've been looking for a single mirror for that spot.

I found this new mirror at Target and it was only $19.99! I added the burlap ribbon for a little extra height. 






The size and color was perfect!



I hung the mirror with the built in hangers on the back and just hot glued the burlap ribbon as a decorative touch. I looped the ribbon through a picture hanger on the wall to make it look like it was holding the mirror. 



Here's a close up of the finish...









As for the sunburst mirrors, they ended up in our bedroom...




I'll be back soon with a tutorial for a Homemade King Cake. Yum!

  3. Good decorator...you reused the little cluster of mirrors. I like the bigger mirror better across from the dish grouping. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  8. Congrats on the feature.....that RH knockoff really is so cool! Love the new mirror and how you added the burlap. I usually have to do things like that, too, because I have a tendency to hang pictures, etc. too low.....I'm 5'1'', so hanging at my eye-level.....well, you get the idea!

    Warm hugs,
    Carol

  9. I love your cute new mirror! I like that it is one single item on one side of the doorway since the other side has multiple items on it. The trio of mirrors look good in your bedroom too! You can't go wrong with mirrors. I love them!

  10. I love the mirror. It was brilliant to add the burlap hanger/accent If I dare find this mirror or another similar, where I need to make it look bigger, I will use your ides. And a glue gun to hold it...is it light weight? Lisa, I LOVE it!
