Frugal Find of the Week Follow-up!

 

A few weeks ago I had lunch with one of my very first clients (and now friend) Seema, and her adorable baby boy! While talking over Tex-Mex, she mentioned that she was in the market for a sunburst mirror for her Dining Room and that she particularly liked the look of the Devon Mirror from ZGallerie. Having recently spent a day perusing through Garden Ridge, I remembered that I had seen a great sunburst mirror which was similar to the Devon....but of course the one at Garden Ridge was very reasonably priced. In fact, I was in the process of doing a post on this particular mirror for my Frugal Find that week!

So right after lunch, she headed to Garden Ridge to hunt it down. I did warn her that the finish on the mirror from Garden Ridge was quite atrocious....however, as I mentioned in the Frugal Find post....a little spray paint could take this mirror from drab to fab!!

As it turns out, Seema was up for the DIY project, so here are the pictures to document her work....

Here is the mirror before being purchased at Garden Ridge...

Frugal Find: Garden Ridge $39.99

As you can see, she removed the center and taped off the mirror to protect it from the spray paint...

With a can of antiqued gold spray paint from Home Depot, she painted the entire frame...

And voila! Here is the final product! Can you believe it?! I'd say she did a fabulous job!

Compare the Frugal Find with the Devon Mirror from Z Gallerie priced at $179.00....Amazing!
