Have I mentioned that I miss the days when the mail was actually delivered to your house? Our first house had a mailbox at the curb. Our current house has a community mailbox further into the cul-de-sac. Thankfully, our new neighbors who have the mailbox at their curb do a better job of shoveling the snow in comparison to the previous residents.
But guess what was waiting in the mailbox? The latest catalog from Ballard Designs. Whoot! Definitely worth a little snow in the boots!
Did you see the Carina Mirror? It's a round mirror with circular beads surrourding the frame. Sound familiar?
If you've been following me for a while, you might recall the oak mirror I updated in our powder room last year.
See the resemblance? I'm patting myself on the back. If you missed the original post, here's the before of the mirror.
I just glued inch wooden half spheres from Hobby Lobby onto the wood frame and spray painted the whole thing ORB.
But the pride and joy of the project is still the vanity light. Let's see that before up close again.
And the after...
I saved myself some major dough by spray painting the old shiny brass fixture and replacing the light shades. I found these shades at Home Depot for about $16 each.
Let's do some math:
Ballard Designs Carina Mirror - $239 + S&H
My "new" mirror - About $10 for wooden spheres and about $4 for a can of ORB spray paint
New light fixture - $120
My "new" light fixture - $32 for the shades and the remainder of the ORB from the mirror.
Maybe I'll apply the savings toward a snowblower.
