Mirror, Mirror On The Wall...

Well hopefully we'll have this mirror hung on the wall soon...although I wouldn't be surprised if it stayed on the floor for a couple months weeks.

In an effort to turn our master-less bedroom into a masterful one, I have been on the hunt for a mirror just like this one.

Ahhhh, the Cyrus Sunburst Mirror from Horchow.  It's gorgeous and the perfect statement piece to go above two chairs I'd like to place on an empty wall in our bedroom.  Unfortunately, there is noooo way I could afford the $387.00 price tag...but wait, the mirror now has a "special value" now of $249.90.  And with the coupon code "SAVENOW", the price drops to $227.28.  Dang...still out of my price range!

While doing some research for a look-a-like mirror, I came across Cyrus's twin {fraternal, of course...since Cyrus has a silvery-golden frame}...Z Gallerie's Devon Mirror.


This option has a price tag of $199, not including the shipping cost and over-sized surcharge.  If I was going to pay all that, I might as well just buy the Horchow version!  So the hunt continued...

I even emailed my Mom yesterday, asking her to keep an eye out for a mirror that resembles the look I was going for.  And wouldn't you know it...last night I stumbled upon the long-lost {and cheaper} cousin of the expensive mirrors I featured above.  Wooohoooooooo!

Of course, it was Home Goods to the rescue.  I had searched my local Home Goods a million times before and never found anything even close to what I wanted.  But last night was different...there were actually TWO of these waiting to be snatched up!


I know the metal frame is a bit more bronze than silvery or golden, but it's very pretty, and if I want to make a change...it's nothing a little paint and dry brushing can't fix!

So for $129.99, this purrrty thing came home with me {and took up almost my entire trunk HA}!  I know it isn't the exact replica of the Horchow version, but for less than half the price, I wasn't expecting it to be!

I actually love how the bronze looks against our newly painted gray walls.  And even Perny approves!  Clearly, that is what's most important in our household. ;-)

  5. I love this!! I think the bronze frame is a nice contrast. Maybe you could pull a little bronze in to the rest of the room. It looks lovely with the grey!

    1. For sure! I originally put satin nickel hardware on my re-done furniture, but I just ordered some aged bronze pieces instead. {Plus, the satin nickel ones just weren't doing it for me...it looked too boring.}
