I love pagoda mirrors. I mean who doesn't right?
They are suited for mantles and entryways and dining rooms that need something over a console or buffet.
They are not for every house or budget. This one from Circa Who is $2800. Another was on eBay for $1500.
The thing I like best about pagoda mirrors is...
that there is now one in my house!!!
Imagine me screaming that and jumping up and down like the people one The Price is Right!
That is how excited I am, especially since the price was right. It amounted to about what the sales tax would be one one found in a retail store.
I have Kristen of Pursuing Vintage to thank for this. She emailed me about an estate sale nearby. At first I dismissed the idea entirely because my husband and I agreed on a spending fast where we buy nothing but food, gas and essentials.
Then I peeked at the offerings and saw the mirror. Despite my inner curmudgeon telling me it would be gone already, too expensive and that I dare not buy anything, I went.
Let's just say that Mr. Design du Monde was none too pleased about this but he was not mad enough not to style the whole thing. He hated the varying blues in my porcelain set up so I scurried about the house bringing pieces for his approval. He is insisting that the painting next to the mirror is wrong looking so I better fix that. He is a styling fiend!
