Blogger/designer Centsational Girl included one of our wall mirrors in a fabulous living room redux. She lucked out and grabbed a floor sample of our Casbah Weathered Bronze Wall Mirror at her local Lamps Plus store. She repainted it to match the French-inspired oeuvre, and voila!
Great work, Centsational Girl! To see more beautiful pictures at her blog, read the full post here.

Fantastic! Thanks so much for the feature. . . I think this mirror's shape is uber fabulous, but needed it to be white to fit my space. Would be wonderful to actually offer it in white, or a really bold color, I'm sure you'd sell even more of this fantastic mirror.
You're welcome, Kate! I agree this mirror would look great in other bold colors. That's the beauty of decorating your home ... it always looks best when you put a little of your personality in it!
any advice on painting mirrors like this? what kind of paint did she use? and did she spray it or brush? thanks!
Excellent question, Susan. I'm not sure if she brushed or spray painted the mirror. But, I found a good resource about spray painting on her site: www.centsationalgirl.com/.../spray-paint-pros-and-cons
I can tell you that there are different spray paint formulas for different surfaces. This mirror frame is made of cast resin. If you buy one that's made for plastics, you should have no problem re-painting it.
Good luck and send us pictures if you end up "personalizing" something!
I love love love it. Also can you tell me what color of paint is on the walls, please. :)
From Centsational Girl's post:
"The paint color started out as Benjamin Moore’s ‘Tranquility’, but then I had the guys at BM pull two drops of blue out of the Affinity formula to arrive at ‘Tranquility Tweaked’ ~ my custom color ~ the perfect gray blue."
Hope that helps!
it's a nice wall color and it sets off the mirror perfectly :)
