For so long, I have wanted a sunburst mirror to go over the sofa in our living room, but I didn't want to pay the heavy price for one. Our sofa is tucked in under the staircase and I felt like the space needed something round to break up all the angles going on here. Until I found what I wanted, I slapped rub & buff on an existing mirror, printed out some birds from Vintage Printable and called it a day. Not the greatest look, but it worked for a while.
Back to my sunburst mirror....Thank you for the inspiration a la Albert Hadley.
I did find this one last winter at Garden Ridge for around $50, but couldn't quite pull the trigger and buy it. It was super heavy and seemed like a nightmare to hang on plaster walls.

I am so glad that I waited because the perfect mirror presented itself the other week on Joss & Main. Just to make this all even more meant to be - I had enough credit to put this thing in my cart without shelling out a dime. I'm one happy girl! Now to patch those holes, ugh!
Do you shop Joss & Main? A curator's collection by my friend Courtney from the blog A Thoughtful Place is going live tomorrow so be sure to check it out.
