If you follow me on Facebook, you may have read that I scored an antique mirror at a thrift store on Black Friday. The store wasn't doing any special sales, but I just wanted to do a quick run through it and got there about 15 minutes before they closed. I saw this big framed mirror leaning up against the wall, but it didn't have a price on it. When I asked for a price and they came back and told me, it was all I could do not to squeal out loud, because I was expected to hear triple the price they gave me. I tried to act relaxed and casual as I told them I would take it.
I forgot to take a photo of it before my husband disconnected the two pieces, but originally the large frame had this mirror in the opening. They looked beautiful together, but I immediately envisioned turning the frame into a chalkboard, since the mirror looks just as pretty by itself.
I think it makes an incredible "statement" mirror. I don't have anywhere to go with it in my home, but if it doesn't sell, I'm going to make room for it somewhere, because I adore it. It's available in my shop HERE.
I'm going to attempt to photograph it tomorrow. Wish me luck, as taking pictures of a tree with lights is uncharted territory for me, so if you don't see a blog post about my tree soon, you'll know I couldn't get a single decent photo and am too embarrassed to show you.
