Mirror Love - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday! 
 
A few weeks ago I sold some things on Craigslist that I no longer have room for in my new place.  After I placed numerous things on there for sale I decided to look around to see what others were selling. I just wanted to look at some pretty things, I had no intention of buying anything. After all, I was selling things because I no longer had enough room for all my stuff. Well, I should have known better! I found this gorgeous, huge mirror for only $99!
 

 
I'm really not spending any extra money these days since my rent is so much higher in my new place but with the money I made selling a few of my things it was free to me!



 It's a gold color now but I'm almost positive I'm going to paint it white. I'm still now sure if this will be where it ends up or if I will hang it somewhere else but I'm sort of liking it here for now!

Thanks to all of you that join in on Show and Tell Friday every week and thanks to all of you who leave such nice comments!

The mirror is so pretty--but I do think it needs to be white :) Mirrors make small spaces look so much bigger--I think it is a great purchase. I never look on Craigslist because I know it would be too hard to resist!

That is a magnificent mirror, Cindy - I've only looked a few times on Craigslist - perhaps I need to give it another try! I do appreciate you hosting,
