When I was a little girl I had a full length mirror in my bedroom. I would sit Indian style in front of this mirror to get ready every morning. When we visit my parents I still love the nostalgia of getting ready in front of it.
I’ve had this vanity and ghetto-rigged mirror for years now, but the little Mo-mo inside of me longed for a thick, espresso wood leaning mirror.
I finally found exactly what I wanted at the West Elm Outlet and it was about 1/2 off regular price! I decided to “surprise” Ben so he pulled up in the driveway, saw the box and just started shaking his head:) Gotta love his humor!
Oh glorious leaning mirror how do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
I grabbed this cute basket at the WE Outlet as well to hold all of my beauty products. The organizer inside the basket is actually a purse organizer, but I’ve always used it for this stuff and it works perfectly!
Here’s a wider shot so you can get the full effect. It came with hardware to mount it to the wall, but it’s wedged pretty good between the wall and windowsill, so we’re going to hold off until toddlers are present in our home.
I had to find a new home for my make-up mirror which I only use once a week to pluck my eyebrows. It’s now conveniently across the room at eye level.
I knew from the moment I saw it that I would love this piece for years to come. It will look fantastic in any room! Most importantly, I am in nostalgia heaven every morning while getting ready in front of my perfect leaning mirror.
Have you bought a piece for sentimental reasons? Any other non-bathroom get readiers out there? Who else likes to surprise their hubby with furniture?
