Project Dressing Area: Mirror, mirror on my wall…

Hi my lovely ladies! I thought I’d update you on Project Dressing Area as it’s been too long! I managed to pick up a LOVELY antique/vintage looking mirror from none other than Home Sense again! For those of you that don’t know, Home Sense is a part of TK Maxx but it’s a whole store dedicated to, yep you guessed it, your home. From kitchens to bathrooms! It’s become one of my favourite shops. The mirror looks a little something like this…

This was literally the day I got it. Sorry for the awful picture quality as it was taken on my phone. It’s pretty heavy but I managed to move this into my room all by myself :D This gorgeous mirror cost me £60! It was originally about £150 odd so, to me, that’s a BIG FAT BARGAIN – I had to get it… & plus, it goes perfectly with my dressing table :)

A few weeks ago my uncle hung it up on my wall for me :) All together it looks a little something like this…

Here’s a little close up for you dolls!

It’s not completely gold like, or as gold as my dresser, but it gives such a nice old antique look to it :) The down side to Home Sense/TK Maxx is that many items like these are one offs. But I HIGHLY recommend you guys to check it out… You might find yourself a great buy! Speaking of Home Sense, today a poor lady fainted in the store! It was so SCARY – but she was al right in the end :)

The lighting is VERY poor in my room so need to sort that out ASAP! Where’s the best place to get a nice, bright, some-what compact stand-up light?

P.S – Do check out Helen & Sheenie’s blog JUST NICE THINGS – My 20 questions post is up today :D

    Hi Kaushal…I was at tk max today, but since i got my car…i’m poorish….you can get a decent stand up light from ikea…and its not that expensive either. you should put it near your dresser so when you want to get ready you can swivel the light to your face…

    hope i’ve helped…love you as always sweet

    LOVE the mirror! TK Maxx is amazing for homeware! How the hell did you manage to carry it home though? I am jealous of the chest of drawers by the way! xo
