Trash Day: Chairs & A Mirror

**A big thanks to Autumn from Design Dump for sending in her fabulous “trash” for this week’s feature!**

Does this need an introduction???

For some of you, no.  For the rest of you, it’s none other than the Williams-Sonoma Hampstead Mirror.   Autumn got this $795 mirror for only $20!!  I know, I know–pick your jaw up off of the floor.  Yes, it’s missing the mirror, but I can assure you that it’s not a $775 fix, so even if it runs $100 (which it shouldn’t) on top of the $20 she paid, she’ll be okay.  I really wanted to hate her when she showed me this fabulous find, but she’s such a great designer and party planner  that you just can’t!  Want to see this mirror in action???  Look no further than Averill from Odi Et Amo, who used it in her fabulous powder room makeover.

Autumn also sent these two chairs she scored for $30 each. 
LOVE.  These chairs just look super comfortable, and I love the slight detail on the legs.  She saw these chairs from my previous post and is using them as the inspiration for their makeover.

I absolutely LOVE these chairs and while hers aren’t exactly the same, I think the style will look great with this linen/burlap & black frame combination.  Here are some other ideas for chairs like this . . .

I chose to highlight different options in patterned fabrics because I think solids are a given with a chair like this.  Almost any color would look great, but I think solids in textured fabrics would really make this stand out–think something like velvet, denim (white only, in my book), or linen. If you want to splurge, this would be pretty fabulous, too.

Another week of great stuff–thanks again, Autumn for your participation!

**this post has been edited to reflect the fact that Autumn’s mirror is actually the $795 one, not the $595, which means it’s an even more mind blowing find!!!!**

    I love trash day. Last week I was a large dresser that I could have turned into a beautiful piece. However, I didn’t have a use for it so I left it.

    Those are terrific chairs, btw.

    I love the new look of your blog! Did you use the “page” feature in blogger for the top tabs under your blog header? I want to try that.

    What a deal. I love WS Home. I could back a U-Haul up to one of their stores and take one of everything.

    Amazing! I can’t believe she found it in such good condition for that price!! Mirror replacement will be easy.

    And thanks for mentioning Odi et Amo — I’m always so flattered when other talented design bloggers like my projects enough to mention them on their own blogs.

    What a great score with that mirror frame! But, my favorite is the chairs! And the ideas that you inspiration chairs that you posted were definitely swoon worthy!

    That mirror is bonkers!! Especially against the wallpaper! WOW WOW WOW! And I would totally love her chairs w/ the yellow cadence fabric. Now those are some truly jaw dropping finds!
