Hey ya’ll! I know, I know…I’ve been a bad blogger! I missed a week (had some technical difficulties!) and that was pretty bad considering that I’ve been dangling a fun giveaway from my last post. Well, before I get to the giveaway, I wanted to give an update on our fun and funky retro bathroom!
Remember when our bathroom went from early 60’s funk to a clean and timeless face-lift? After the big reveal, I received some comments about our antique mirror. People were NOT digging the oak framed mirror with our 20’s inspired, black and white bathroom. Needless to say, ya’ll gave me a new mission…to find the perfect mirror to compliment our new look.
At first, I started looking at places like Lowes, Home Depot and HomeGoods for a frameless mirror on a pivot, like this one:
Problem was, the dimensions were all wrong…and most of these mirrors are around 24″-26″ tall, which wouldn’t have worked with our light fixture. I really liked the way it looked in Dorie’s bathroom from Tuesdays with Dorie:
So I was back on the hunt…but this time, for something vintage. Luckily, I didn’t have to go that far. I live about 4 miles from a cute antique shop and when I went in I found…not only ONE vintage frameless mirror from the 1920’s …but TWO! And I had a gift card:) Lucky day!
And to make the room complete, we hired A & J Resurfacing to give our old cast iron tub a much needed makeover! The tub wasn’t in horrible shape before, but was very dull and dingy from 40-some years of use. And we couldn’t be happier with the results! It looks like a brand new tub!
Okay, so enough about the bathroom! How about entering for a fun freebie? To celebrate my one year Blog-Birthday, I’ve crafted a one of a kind wool and homespun penny-rug heart to show my love and appreciation to all of my lovely readers (this means you!). Hang it on a door knob, a windowsill or display it on your favorite antique bookcase!
