For weeks, months even, I have been on the look out for a fireplace mirror. Specifically something like Emily A Clark’s, it has just always caught my eye.
I tried all the usual suspects, WestElm, PotteryBarn, Target, WorldMarket, local Goodwill. And as per the usual, once you’ve begun a search, similar items will pop up in your ad sidebars. So, I’ve been looking even when I wasn’t looking.
But nothing fit my budget or comfort level with buying online. I could not handle the idea of trying to return an oversized mirror ($$$) and I was really concerned about materials and size. I can be picky, not Bridezilla picky, but picky nonetheless.
Well Gang, on Friday, I got an email from PB, 15% off everything for your walls. So, I quick looked again and the Wood Sun Mirror caught my eye.
35" diameter, mango wood frame
It took me a good whiiiile to pull the trigger cause PB is not exactly cheap. On sale $340, regular $399. Whimper, whimper, whimper, my budget was closer to $250, preferably less. But as I get older, I realize something’s require top dollar, like good fitting jeans, cute comfortable shoes and a big ol’ mirror for your mantle.
So, when the local store confirmed they had it in stock, the scales tipped. No S&H and a hassle-free return (if needed). Ok, still hesitant, but sold.
After a little measuring yesterday, the mirror was up, honestly yall, it took less than 30 minutes. I forgot to mention, the mirror came packaged with the necessary wall fasteners, looooved that! No extra trips. I really love the color, shape and details. It definitely fits my neutral vibe and once I find some complimentary accessories, I think she’ll be fantastic in her new home.
