This is the hefty bamboo mirror that I snagged for $17 at Bainbridge Island's Rotary sale, a few weeks ago. I am guessing it hadn't been the focal point of any room since sometime in the mid-eighties. Unfortunately, I do not have eighties themed decor in my home. So, this gold metallic and brown sponge-painted bad boy, got several coats of paint, in a color I created myself which I like to call Black Coffee.
It now has a new home on top of my white buffet in the dining room. I like the striking contrast between the two pieces. The brownish black color of the mirror brings in a softer element, as compared to other, more dramatic jet black accents in the room.
I also picked up this pretty, but very solid end table for just $5. The fiendish painter in me envisioned it in bright persimmon. Once I got it in the house however, I decided it was just fine as is (for now anyways).
