A mirror is an entryway must, as far as I’m concerned. They aren’t just practical next to a door, but they make a statement, finish off a space, and add style and an easiness to a foyer. As I was working on my thrift store console table, I knew a mirror needed to go above it. And so I started searching.
I have long been in love with Hollywood Regency octagonal mirrors. I think they are so chic. I’ve sourced a few and most run $300-$400 easy. So, when I spotted this baby tucked behind a headboard at a local thrift store, I think I let out an audible “oh my.” I snatched it up in a flash. $8 bucks, ya’ll! Octogonal mirror makeover time.
I debated what color to paint it. I’ve seen every color under the sun, and they all look amazing. But, my heart turned golden. This was my inspiration:

In the video, I talked about the paint selection. I ended up going with Rustoleum Pure Gold. It wasn’t too shiny, but just had the right sheen and color for the look I was going for. I really love how it all came together.
We’ve been cozied up inside for the past day as the first major snowstorm of the season blows through Utah. It’s dreamy. I love snow…. until March.
I’m getting my Christmas crafting on. Can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on!
