Thrift store jackpot! Well, a great deal, at least! I snagged this mirror at the thrift store for $2.99. Original TJMaxx sticker is marked 19.99. Great price, sort of zzzzz.
Inspiration comes in many forms. For this mirror and the light wood finish, my inspiration came from this wood and turquoise bowl at H&M:

Such a creative and simple project! I’m totally a sucker for turquoise, too…. I just wanted to let you know that I included this project in a post today on my blog, Plaster & Disaster, about some inspirational projects from across the blogosphere that involve making over common thrift store items. It’s awesome to see creative ideas for transforming things that most people tend to pass right by. We link directly back to your original post, and ask people to pin from the original source.
Thank you for inspiring! (you can see the post here: http://www.plasteranddisaster.com/makeovers-of-common-thrift-store-items-roundup/)
