Bamboo Mirror.

Recently, I have been on the hunt for an affordable bamboo mirror to hang in our master bedroom above the desk.  Here are some of the options I found during my search:

From ebay (buy it now price: $1,050):

Hampstead Mirror from Williams-Sonoma Home (on sale for $466.25):

Greek Key Mirror from Ballard Designs (for $269):

All of those options were more than I wanted to spend.  But after some persistent looking, I happened to come across the perfect vintage bamboo mirror on craigslist for $150!  These are the seller's photos:    

And here it is in its new home above the desk:

I originally thought about cutting off the top part and hanging it horizontally, but I love the detail in the top.  Now I just need to decide on what color to repaint it.  Any suggestions?  White, black, something else?


  1. What accent color are you using in the room? Perhaps you could paint it that color - or the khaki color in the headboard and bedding. White is always safe - but you have a lot of white in there already.


  2. I adore the color it is. It totally pops with the white dresser. Unless it totally doesn't go with the rest of the room. Great find!


Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! It's great to hear from you!
