Mirror Mirror on the Wall

Budget-Friendly Home Makeover

This is a beautiful mirror. I love all the details and how it fits perfectly over the couch, but the color just didn’t go with the décor. I bought this at a garage sale for $200 about 10 years ago. Back in the day when Old World and the Tuscan look was popular.

Now I’m transforming my home in a Coastal décor, but I just couldn’t part with this mirror. So, I’m going to do the unthinkable.
