Speaking of mirrors, ten days ago I won a Syroco Federal Mirror on eBay and over the weekend, it arrived on my doorstep in all of its vintage glory:
The mirror is made from a plastic mold but the color and details make it look like carved wood:
When I was bidding on the mirror, I was planning on spray painting it gold as soon as it arrived but I changed my mind after I opened the box. I love the wooden look and the tiny gold details on the raised circles:
Sidenote: I just noticed that green paint on the right under the gold circle. Normally something like that would bother me but since it's a vintage mirror, I think it adds character! I think...
And the Eagle at the top:
If you couldn't tell from the photos above, I hung the mirror in the center of the navy wall in our loft:
And can't wait to surround it with more mirrors!
Have you scored anything awesome on eBay lately?
