The bathroom mirror was an awesome garage sale find a few summers ago. I’m pretty sure it was originally a cabinet door painted white, perhaps an old vanity door, and was priced at only $2 (well, I may have talked them down from $5), I knew I could put it to good use again.
Adorned with a sweet floral texture, I knew I wanted to bring it home to use in the bathroom as a replacement for the too-expected-and-cheap medicine cabinet that had been installed over the sink. It was a nice size too; even a bigger mirror than the one on the cabinet.
The swap actually allows for a bit more sink space – the cabinet that came with the house was jutting over the faucet, whereas the new mirror lays more flush against the wall. That’s an IKEA GRUNDTAL towel rack in the mirror reflection below. And it’s big sister is shown in the reflection of the above photo. (I updated those towel racks a few months ago and wrote about that over here.)
I still haven’t painted it; fully intend to though. There are some rough patches that could use a fresh coat (it shows in some areas that the frame was once painted an aquamarine hue and I’d like to hide that). The only thing I did was swap in a few Anthropologie flower knobs into the existing holes, where the cabinet handle must have been. The little added pop of color does it nicely, I think.
