Enter this mirror from Kohl's:
Current Sale Price: $64.99
I actually picked it up in early summer because at that time, it was on sale for $45 (down from the full price of $99 at the time), and I had a 30% off coupon, and $20 in Kohl's Cash to use up. I couldn't not buy it:). I had always planned on spray painting it gold. My cost for the mirror was about $20 after all discounts.
I used Rustoleum's Gold Spray Paint on the mirror. Well, first I used Krylon's gold spray paint, but I quickly learned that not all gold spray paints are created equal. I liked the Rustoleum color much better! I felt like I had the Midas touch!
Here is how the mirror turned out:
The overall room look now is this:
That rug now really needs to be switched out to better fit the style of the room and that light fixture has got to go too! One thing at a time though:)! For now, I'm just loving the new mirror, and I'm excited at how the room is shaping up as a whole!
Have a wonderful weekend!
P.S. It's crazy to think that one week ago, we were playing in the leaves in fall coats, and yesterday, we needed big, bulky winter coats for a simple walk around the neighborhood. I wish fall could stay for a little longer:
