Looking chic without the outrageous price tag

Under a budget, but need to decorate with a little class? Well, don’t think that it’s impossible because it isn’t! There is no need to waste your well-earned paycheck on an expensive item when you can find a similar piece with have the price.

Recently, as I sift through my well-followed blogs and websites, I’ve been seeing a lot of oversized mirrors. Don’t get me wrong I love an enormous mirror no matter where it is; yet this design technique opens up a room while bringing in a little sparkle. Who knew a mirror was used for more than checking yourself out?

As shown above, mirrors can be placed on dressers, end tables, walls, or even the floor. Don’t feel silly adding a mirror to your space either. A simple place holder like this can add so much more to a room than a meaningless painting your relative gave you or you found at the store. Plus, mirrors (depending on the trim) can fit into any color scheme or theme.

While shopping the other day, my goal was to find a large mirror to place on an end table in my next apartment. I went to HomeGoods and found the perfect one with only a $35 price tag. Seriously? That’s it? (This mirror is huge too so don’t think I’m fooling you.) This look has been in the back of my mind for so long and I finally can execute it with ease.

Other stores with similar pieces that I think are great are Hobby Lobby, Lowes, and several other craft and home development stores. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed with this design and if you are, well take that mirror in the bathroom and use it for your work morning routine. {Photo sources: Vintageluxe, Mydecorinspirations, Justinetaylor, Dressedto9, Architects Home Design}.
