Powder Room Update

Remember the five-paneled mirror I scored at Home Goods last November for a mere $60?

When I bought it I hoped it would replace the standard oval mirror that hung in our powder room on the main level of our townhome.

Unfortunately...the mirror wouldn't fit length-wise because the bulbs on the then-current fixture pointed down.

For a couple of months I searched high and low for a bath sconce that pointed up, rather than down, and was under $100.

Finally, I found exactly what I was looking for at Restoration Hardware -- the Vintage Double Sconce -- which was on sale for $64.99, and had the contemporary traditional look I like.

It ended up working perfectly! Because the powder room is so small, the much larger mirror makes it feel like a bigger space.

This powder room is a kind of like a little wall pocket, so please excuse the pictures -- it was really difficult to get a good one because it's so tiny!

Here's my Home Goods find:

Here's the sconce:

And here they are together (from the hallway...I'm telling you, this powder room is small!):

Not a bad update for under $140!
