This MacLeod mirror from Spare Contemporary jumped out at me from a Fab.com sale the other day, but I wasn’t sure quite what I was responding to about it.  Was it the rustic faded red color? Was it the eco-friendly angle? (It’s a salvaged rim spacer from an 18-wheeler.)  Or the fact that I think it would work well in a number of different styles of rooms, from industrial to cottage, even mid-century modern?

Those are all big pluses in my mind, but looking at it again, I think I’ve figured out my attraction. It kinda looks like a giant Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. (In a good way.)

    I was thinking about its decorating quotient–I can see it in a dining room or entry hall, with seasonal flowers nestled along the bottom or up the side, since it is so deep (with fresh flowers, stick the stems in water picks and cover with a little moss). I like it!

      Ooh, love those ideas. It's so deep, I bet you could even use it as a mirrored bottom tray, too!

    It has "country" style possibility as well. And Karen's led me to picture it with holly sporting bright berries. Love it, but need it not to remind of a giant Reeses. Thanks Briana, that's all I need, subliminal Reeses messaging. ;-)

  3. It's amazing. The industrial vibe — and the fact that it's made from an 18-wheeler rim spacer! — make it perfect for a modern, masculine space. Thanks for discovering and sharing this gem!
