French inspired find

Just a little something in a perfect shade of gray
That is a little bit shabby and vintage inspired

Sometimes you just find a piece that is a perfect addition to a room

This mirror was just sitting all lonely looking at HomeGoods
when I found it. I walked by to take a peek at what they might have
and there it was. I love the details and that worn paint.

The soft taupe gray color and the vintage French inspired design was what first caught my eye
 of course
but I also loved that it was the perfect size
and that it was not expensive.

I knew just where it would go
and envisioned it in the sitting area surrounded by transferware plates and platters

But once I got it home I decided to try it somewhere else
I set it down and  even just leaning on the small shelf in the bathroom 
it seemed like the color and size were made for that area.

I do love it leaning though I think it will be up on the wall properly soon-
I was a big rush to get these photos done before something special so I just snapped them quickly

Though I love vintage mirrors and keep my eyes open for them all the time
I can get frustrated sometimes when I don’t find that perfect vintage piece right away
and I am looking for a change- so a well made reproduction at a fantastic price is definitely a treasure.

Happy Wednesday
