Mirror, Mirror on the Wall ... Finally!!

Thank you to everyone who weighed in on my mirror decision. I really loved getting your input! I know it's been ages, but I thought I'd show you the "winner." Or should I say winners...












A couple of you asked if I planned to paint the cabinetry. Originally, I was hoping not to. I thought I'd go for the rustic look. Unfortunately, the cabinets aren't giving off the rustic vibe. Just the boring oak vibe.

I thought it would be really cool to sand the cabinets and lime them to look like the "Restoration Hardware" wood. But, since it took me nearly a month to hang two mirrors, I seriously doubt I have the time for such an involved process.

Plan B is to paint the cabinets. I've made my color decision. Now, I just have to do the work.

Wish me luck :)

  2. The new mirrors look great in there. I like how each sink has its own mirror. The white really pops against the dark wall color too.

  3. I snorted at the "boring oak vibe" and then laughed out with the "took me a month to hang to mirrors!" Ha!!! That is so funny! They look great and I know you will rock out the cabinet!

  6. So very lovely. But I agree the cupboard would be better painted. What you have done so far is lovely.

  11. Such lucky winners they are! And I truly think you'll be pleased as punch after you paint the cabinets. Seriously, it'll complete the room ... and you'll keep finding excuses to stand in the doorway and admire your brilliance!

  14. I'm seriously in love with those mirrors. I looked at all the HomeGoods in my area and no such luck. They are amazing.

    I actually kind of like the cabinets. They seem to be a pretty stain, but I'm sure whatever you do will still be amazing!
