It is a mirror/art piece created from a ceiling medallion! A while back (like 9 mos. to a year ago) I picked up this ceiling medallion at my favorite 25¢ booth at my parking lot yard sale. I wasn’t sure if it I was going to use it for medallion or for an art piece but for 25¢ I figured I could do something with it!
I also had in my stash a mirror/candle plate from Hobby Lobby. $2.99 but half off so I paid $1.50. So this project cost me $1.75, and took me like 1.5 minutes, after the items sat in my craft/spare room aka “the room where crafts go to die” for almost a year.
I wiped down the medallion and the mirror and hot glued the mirror on to the back of the medallion. I didn’t even paint the medallion as I wanted it white anyways, but it would probably have a glossier finish if I would paint it.
You can also see that I used to have a large plate hanging in the middle of the smaller plates in my dining room. I decided to switch that out with this ceiling medallion mirror for now.
I would like to eventually use the ceiling medallion mirror in a gallery wall arrangement in our master bedroom once I decorate/makeover that room. But until then I will enjoy it in the dining room.
You can see my pumpkin topiary sitting on the kitchen table reflecting it in the mirror in this shot.

How about you? Do you take 9 months to do projects that take 2 minutes? Need a mirror or some decor for your house and have an extra ceiling medallion laying around?? 🙂
