Someday/Today: Mirror, Mirror

I heart this mirror from Grain, but my budget can afford only DIY decor right now.


I hope to hang one of these modern mirrors in my bedroom. Grain uses string to wrap the edge of the mirror and the colorful combination they have chosen reminds me of South of the Border. Pass the margaritas, please. And let me borrow $1,100.00 while you’re at it. No? Bummer. A girl can dream, but she must also learn to improvise.

Grain was founded in 2007 by a group of RISD graduates, and it’s based on Bainbridge Island in Washington. Its mission is simple: to create beautiful and sustainable designs and support artisans everywhere. Something to aspire to, for sure. In the meantime:


I can make this simple sunburst mirror and still make a statement. With a few inexpensive items, I can put this mirror together myself. With a $5 mirror, dowels, silver spray paint, glue and some wire, it’s easy to create something fabulous. You can find the full details on Beach House in the City.
