An Estate Sale Find – Master Bathroom

I love estate sales. Some are better than others

as far as finding a treasure or two, or more!

I found this little treasure a long time ago. I do not think I have shared this with you.

I placed it in the Guest Room Bathroom and the location of it was hard to photograph

so maybe that is why you may not have seen it.

No, the estate sale item is not in the above photo.

However, if you are a regular reader, you may notice a few little changes in the above photo.

I moved the table next to the chair and I replaced it with a new basket

that I purchased in a shop in Cashiers, NC when we went to the Cashiers Showcase Home.

I then filled it with my monogrammed towels.

The estate sale find is this pretty blue mirror with a chinoiserie design.

I loved the shape, color and design.

This area previously had a framed print,

however, I wanted something that fit the space better and this mirror fit the bill.

Now there is a little story about this mirror.

It was part of a set. It had a matching credenza.

The mirror and credenza were to be sold as a set.

Although the credenza was beautiful, I did not have any use for it.

So I bargained with the estate sale company. I love to negotiate!

I asked if the set was still there on the last day of the sale towards closing,

if I could then buy just the mirror. They agreed. I went back and there it was …. sold!

One of the things that I love about mirrors is what they reflect,

and not necessarily me!

This mirror is by Uttermost and it was perfect with my bronze and brushed chrome in the room.

Now back to the other side of the bathroom where there were a couple of changes.

Like the addition of this basket. I love the added texture and contrast to the area.

Plants are happy in this room.

The French Country table was moved next to the chair that holds some bath necessities.

I am happy with the new balance of this area.

When I lost power during the storm, I decided to take a walk around the house

to assess what projects I needed to complete. I have a long list!

Talking about the hurricane, I want to extend my thoughts and prayers

to all of the victims of Hurricane Matthew. I am blessed that my family and I faired very well.

My large Florida family just lost power and had slight damage but escaped the severe ravages of the storm.

We are all counting our blessings.

I am proud of my niece who just moved into her home in

Downtown St. Augustine a week before the hurricane.

Her house was spared by inches and now rather than completing the move into her new home,

she and her hubby are helping those neighbors who were less fortunate.

Here’s to  wonderful weeks to come of caring and sharing.

    And blessed are you to still have your homes unscathed from Matthew, as well as your niece’s. It was a stressful week, watching it all unfold, and knowing family & friends were in harm’s way. My sister evacuated from Beaufort, still isn’t able to return yet, and doesn’t know what damage she sustained. :/
