Do you remember that mirror I made for the Bungalow Barn last week? The one that was inspired by this Ballard Designs mirror…
Well, I told you I was going to come up with a fun way to re-create the arched look at the top, and today I thought I’d show you what I did.
It’s a half windmill from Urban Farmgirl. Does that just say BARN or what?! 😀
I’ll be back soon with another fun Bungalow Barn-related decorating project. I’m surprising Mama Katie with it or I’d give you a hint about what it is. 😉
PS- If you’re on the hunt for a half (or full!) windmill too, you can find the gal I got it from (Mary Gulbrantson) here:
I saw a very similar half windmill at our new Hobby Lobby last week.
Looks great! You have such a talent for decorating. I’m eager to see your surprise for Mama Katie.
hello haha narf
It looks great!!! The banquet for the barn, is the seating made out of upper kitchen cabinets?? Have a great day!

I’ve seen them at Hob Lob too. II wish I had seen them last year. My daughter got married at a gorgeous orchard venue that converted a grain silo to a bar with a gigantic, vintage windmill ceiling fan. So to jump off on that for decorating I made a few windmills out of laundry pod lids (look like gear hubs) dowels and aluminum flashing blades all sprayed copper. They look great on a wall but the flashing is a little bit dangerous to work with. If I had a blog I’d do a tutorial!
I just traveled to Urban Farmgirl in IL all the way from Wisconsin with a girlfriend of mine for the ‘Vintage shop Hop’ day and it did not disappoint! Absolutely beautiful decor and the store/house itself is amazing! I just wished I had a bigger pocketbook! 🙂 My girlfriend came close to getting that windmill, it looks fantastic in your home…as does everything you do. 🙂
Adorable! I like yours even better than the original inspiration.
Can you get any more clever or creative? Fabulous idea! Now, I’m on the hunt!
Layla, would you mind sharing where you got that narrow console/credenza with the doors & baskets? We could use a piece like that – added storage with a narrow footprint.
Love the mirror and windmill too!
What a creative way to create the arched top. I actually like what you did, much more than the original piece, don’t you just love it when your DIY’s turn out better than the original? Decorating with wall mirrors in a small space is always a great idea, really makes the space light up and give the illusion of a larger space.
