Turn Funky Flea Market Mirrors Into Art

As I thought I might, I found a great way to display vintage mirrors on A Beach Cottage, one of my all-time favorite sites for decorating ideas. Sarah, the site’s founder—“an advocate for winging it and not worrying about perfection”—shares projects and ideas that help you create a comfortable, casual home without spending a fortune. 'I started blogging to document the journey of our fixer-upper cottage, but it has become so much more than a blog for me, it has provided me with a place to fulfill my passion for casual, laid-back decor, vintage coastal style and more has become for me a cathartic outlet at the end of the day,' Sarah states.

Sarah chronicles her every move as she decorates her cottage-near-the-sea in Australia with vintage finds painted in a tried and tested hand-mixed white, piles of white linens and striped cotton rugs, and heaps of vintage china. Her eye is perfectly imperfect, and her cottage couldn’t be more hospitable. I return to A Beach Cottage whenever I need inspiration, relaxation or just a little eye candy.
