Updated Bathroom Mirrors

I've had my eye out for some beveled oval mirrors for our bathrooms.  
My hunt finally came to an end when I read (then drooled over) Katie's post on her new office bathroom.   
She shared that she purchased her bathroom hardware on clearance from Lowe's.  I didn't so much need towel bars and light fixtures, but when I saw the beautiful beveled mirror, I hightailed it to Lowe's to see if I could find the same bargains.  To my surprise, I found three for $44.98 each, originally $74.98!  Score!  
The mirrors came with a polished nickel finish.  Most of the hardware is ORB in the downstairs and master bathrooms, so I purchased some self etching primer and dark bronze spray paint.
 Since the hardware is a polished nickel, the self etching primer will help the top coat adhere better.
 A light sanding before spraying the top coat helped to give it a smooth finish.
 After 24 hours of drying, hubby installed the first of three mirrors.  
I love my damask rug from Target!  
We'll be hanging the other two this weekend.  This is what it looks like now...
I'll be back soon to show you the updated look.
Thank you to Katie @ Bower Power for sharing her beautiful new office bathroom
and for letting us in on the great bargains!  :)

I absolutely loved the polished nickel finish in the before, but I guess you feel you have to keep the finishes consistent.
