Luxe for Less - Pottery Barn Eagan Mirror

Welcome again to all my new readers from Better After and HGTV's RMS along with all my current readers.  Feel free to poke around my blog and leave comments or questions.

I'm always a sucker for a fabulous mirror which is strange because I try to avoid them if I can. I walked into Pottery Barn last year and saw the Eagan mirror and fell instantly in love until I saw the price and promptly got my heart broken.  As fantastic as this mirror is, I can't even imagine paying $699 for a mirror. 

I found this comparable mirror for 75% less than the PB one at Pier 1 for $149.99

You could also try to DIY it, here is a great tutorial from the Lettered Cottage.
 Although I would love to DIY such a project, I'm scared of circular saws and have had nightmares of chopping my fingers.  TMI ?

Home Tour - Guest Room

I'm finally getting around to completing all my half finished projects around the house, and trust me I have quite a few of them.  I'm going to try tackling a project each month.  We'll see how that goes. 

This past weekend I worked on my guest room and I think I'm finally done until my Design ADD kicks in again.

Here's a shot of the room before, in all of it's purple glory.

Here's the guest room now.

I know the imperial trellis pattern is "supposed" to be last season but I still love it, plus this pillow came from Target and only cost $10.  Can't beat the price and the shot of blue has a huge impact in the room.

The wall color is sauteed mushroom

I purchased the stencil months ago and was dragging my feet because I thought it was going to be a lot of work but it only took around 4 hours for the wall.  I used a roller and it was fairly easy except for last row since I had to bend the stencil. 

The paint for the stencil pattern was a metallic paint from Martha Stewart and the mirror was purchased from Home Goods.

 Every guest room needs a chair and this chair doesn't overwhelm the room, plus I'm a sucker for nail head trim.

I purchased this capiz shell chandelier from Target when they had their last global bazaar event, it was on clearance for $25.  This was definitely an awesome buy.  I do miss Target's global design event, I wonder if they'll bring it back.
Well that was the room in all it's glory, one project down, countless to go......
