I can't believe I got this gilt mirror for $8! Yup, it's from my local charity shop.
Okay, I admit, it's not carved wood but moulded plastic, not that you can tell until you touch or hold it. What attracted me to it most is it's shape and it's super light which makes it really easy to hang. For these photos I hung it above my bargain $30 side table which I sourced on Gumtree but I know it won't be able to stay because its 'way too ornate and girly for our living room'!
I haven't decided whether to keep it this slightly brash gold or touch it up with a soft old gold or paint it white.
I've thrown in some extra photos of my sweetpeas and lilies. I can't go through a weekend without buying fresh flowers, they are my little treat after all my great thrifting! :-)
