Double Parlor The Victorian House

Peacock Mirror

There is a wall in our back parlor that has been calling out for a mirror. I hung the Lily mirror from our old house as a placeholder, but it felt a bit too girly for the space. The gold sunburst mirror in the first photo from the other day’s post would have been perfect! Alas, at seven hundred and something dollars, it’s going to have to go and be perfect in the home of someone else. I started looking around yesterday for some possible alternatives, and I found a peacock mirror at Pier 1 via Copy Cat Chic. My local store had one in stock, so I figured I’d walk over and take a look. I hadn’t planned on buying it right away, but two small mirrors were missing and it was being sold “as-is” for a steal. Yes! I had wanted a peacock mirror for the house since we first knew we were going to be moving here!

Honestly, it’s so busy that the flaws are hard to spot. There were a couple of scuffs that I’ve already touched up with gold paint, and I’ll pick up a couple of small mirrors from the craft store to replace the missing ones. After it’s all fixed up, it will be good as new! Once again, I am all about the floor model.

    That is the prettiest combination. I know you posted the name of your blue paint but could you post it again if you have the time. Thanks-I love that mirror and it is not something I would have taken home. Just shows how keen is the eye of the talented Decorator

    Sorry Nicole On my laptop its a beautiful blue. I think I was harking back to Eleanor’s room with the starry, starry night ceiling. What is that shade?

    The different colors in the mirror really stand out against that dark wall. Lovely! I love how generous Pier 1 is with their floor model prices. I was able to pick up a floor model parson’s chair from there a couple years ago at a steal due to a tiny imperfection that I easily fixed at home.

    I was lucky enough that my mom snagged me a floor model of this mirror a few years ago and it needed several replacement mirrors and some touch up. Happy to report that a cheap bag of circle mirrors from Michael’s worked perfect!
    Now you have me reconsidering black paint – it looks fabulous!
