I am currently blogging from Greensboro,NC.
We evacuated our home on the coast &
we are safe in our hotel room with our furbabies.
I hated leaving our home, but our home is
replaceable, our little family is not.
I hope & pray for safety for everyone in the path of Irene.
This week in the middle of working on some custom
furniture pieces for clients, I did a little adjusting to
our entryway. Ok, so I only added a mirror, but it made a huge difference!
Lately I have been thinking about “chincy” decorating.
For example, my entry table is a bulky piece &
I had a tiny shelf hanging above it with my framed vintage keys.
The huge bulky piece made the surrounding decor look chincy
& did nothing to enhance the area. It almost looked cluttered.
I happen to have a huge mirror in my garage that I had picked up from GoodWill
for $10 a while back that would be perfect for the job….
I’m pretty much obsessed with this ornate gold mirror.
I want more.
I didn’t realize how much I hated this set up before until I just looked
at this before picture. Funny huh?
It’s a start.
A good start.
There are many more changes to come to the entryway,
but I like the direction
that this oversized mirror put me in.
Can I tell you where my gold mirror obsession came from?
Well, Pinterest of course.
I think Gold is my new obsession.
I can’t wait to bring more gold in through out my house.
The Gold Mirror really anchors the large entry table & adds an element of drama
that was seriously lacking before.
Have I told you lately that I can’t wait for wood floors?
Carpet is cozy, but not my design choice.
You want to know why I don’t have them yet?
because I can’t decide on what wood floor choice to go with!
That’s me. Mrs. Indecisive!
Frame: TJ Maxx
Teal Vase: Hobby Lobby

Do you love my Gold Mirror as much as me?
Let me know what you think of adding gold into your decor.
I am now going to enjoy my stay in Goldsboro with my hubby & dogs,
& try to forget the hurricane looming over my house back on the coast…
We will think of this as a surprise mini vacation.
Yes. That sounds fabulous.
Say a prayer for the east coast tonight!
Thanks for stopping by guys!
