Style Sunday: Quatrefoil Mirror

In this previous post, I noted that I'd been obsessed with a round mirror to go over my chest in my bedroom. I usually daydream of something for a week, hence the outlet of weekly Style Sunday posts. Even though I research it, sometimes I don't even actually make the purchase. I don't own a pair of cheetah flats, for example. ...but I actually acquired a mirror.

I did make it to Pier 1 to take a look at that mirror I featured, but they didn't have it in stock. At $179.99, I wouldn't have bought it anyway. It's simply out of my budget. On the way back, I stopped in at my favorite store, HomeGoods and found a mirror. Now, it's not round, but the quatrefoil form I love and that reminds me of Italy. I bought this large quatrefoil mirror for only $29.99! It's about 30 inches across each way.


I actually paid a price like that for one a fourth of its size at Target. It hangs above my jewelry armoire. I remarked to the cashier that it was such an amazing value, and she agreed that all the large mirrors in the store were.

Now, I need to figure out how to hang it! It warns not to hang it on wire, so that's out. It recommends anchors and screws and all. And it's a bit too heavy to hang on a single nail. I am hesitant to ask my dad who hung everything else in my apartment since he recently paid for repairs on my new-to-me car (which turned out to need a thousand dollars worth of repairs) and I owe him that money. Also, it may go in my living room and not in my bedroom as originally intended. I'll figure it out.

I must go to work now, make that money.

  1. Head to Home Depot or Lowes and pick up hangers for frames. They look like metal buckles almost. One on each side of the frame and you're set. We're picking some up for a mirror for our bedroom. Also, I saw one like that the other day and actually thought about recommending it instead of a round mirror! Great purchase!
