A mirror is an entryway must, as far as I’m concerned.  They aren’t just practical next to a door, but they make a statement, finish off a space, and add style and an easiness to a foyer.  As I was working on my thrift store console table, I knew a mirror needed to go above it.  And so I started searching.

I have long been in love with Hollywood Regency octagonal mirrors.  I think they are so chic.  I’ve sourced a few and most run $300-$400 easy.  So, when I spotted this baby tucked behind a headboard at a local thrift store, I think I let out an audible “oh my.”  I snatched it up in a flash.  $8 bucks, ya’ll!  Octogonal mirror makeover time.

I debated what color to paint it.  I’ve seen every color under the sun, and they all look amazing.  But, my heart turned golden.  This was my inspiration:

Here is how the makeover went down via video…

In the video, I talked about the paint selection.  I ended up going with Rustoleum Pure Gold.  It wasn’t too shiny, but just had the right sheen and color for the look I was going for.  I really love how it all came together.

We’ve been cozied up inside for the past day as the first major snowstorm of the season blows through Utah.  It’s dreamy.  I love snow…. until March.

I’m getting my Christmas crafting on.  Can’t wait to show you what I’ve been working on!

Happy Wednesday!

  1. Love this! Where do you thrift in slc? I never have any luck?!

  2. Love how that turned out! I’m having a hard time finding Rusoleum brand, where did you buy?
    Also, what is your wall paint color?

    • Hi Amy! Both Home Depot and Lowe’s carry a great selection of Rustoleum. Look on the spray paint isle. And my walls are Restoration Hardware Pale Silver. Good luck and thanks for reading!
