Stick Mirror

Every time I read back over my post the next morning, I am constantly amazed (and embarressed) at my stupid typos that spell check won't catch! UGh! That's what happens when you type with constant interuptions and are about to LITERALLY fall into the bed. Most nights I don't even remember my head hitting the pillow. Frankly, I'm surprised I can even type a complete thought. In the past, I'd have beat my self up for that...my post was not perfect! These days I'm just happy it got posted! I've learned to let a lot of stuff go over the years. Kids have been good for me:) Plus, I'd wager a lot of you are busy mom's yourself...you know what it's like:) It's not about perfection...it's about purpose and accomplishing the goal.

Now, on to my post for today:

I'm all about knock-offs. Have you noticed? This is just a cool coincidence, though. Check out this mirror at Ballards a friend just emailed me:


Driftwood Rectangular Mirror
Ballards "Driftwood Rectangular Mirror"
$329.00
 Now, check out my mirror I made for my powder room:

"Stick Mirror"
B.E. Interiors


The funny thing is I'd not seen this when I made my mirror. In fact, I'm pretty sure this is a new product for them. I got my idea from seeing this mirror somewhere on the web...I have no idea where!



I wish I could say this was my idea, but I'd seen the above image to spark the old imagination. So, just out of curiosity, I got to looking for other branch, twig or stick mirrors. Check out the options below (and their price tags!):



Hayneedle
$139.99
 
Horchow
$295


Bellacor
$695.20



Urban Outfitters
$149
  
Arteriors 5407 Finishes image
Quality Bath
$717.60
Whew! Do you want to know how much mine cost? Whatever the price is of a tube of Liquid Nails is. I don't even think I bought it for this project...it was just leftover. So, really....mine cost me $0. Can't beat that!
