Here are some long overdue pictures of the result of my mom's visit to Liverpool. We bought this mirror and I painted it the same bright blue as I did our built-in shelves. It's hanging in the dining room and brightening up the small space nicely.
The new mirror, the "sunburst mirror" is what my mom bought Chris and I for our apartment-warming gift. It is by far the coolest mirror I have ever seen. I'm still hoping to get more mirrors to decorate this wall with, but I'm pretty sure none will compare to this one. :-)
Here's another pic of the sunburst mirror up close.
