Looking for a Mirror

I'm on a mad hunt for a round mirror, and I don't want to spend a lot of money.  I've stalked some local consignment shops (and continue to stalk), but nothing has caught my eye or they have all been rectangular and that doesn't fit the bill.  I've also searched and searched Craigs List but again, nothing - I get a little impatient with Craigs List.    I've gathered a few inspiration mirrors that I like and would love to find a much less expensive version.   Criteria for the mirror - decent size as it will be placed on a fairly large wall, some interesting details that will catch my eye, and it must be white or something that I could paint white.   Doesn't seem like I'm being too picky, does it?    I think the price point is what is tough - all of the mirrors I really like are not within the budget.    Here are some examples.

I love this one below from Z. Gallerie - the shape is great and I love all of the details.

The texture of this one below is really great, but if only it were white.   I can't justify paying the money for this one only to paint it.  Not for $199.

Minus the stand I like this one.

At this point, I'm going to try my best to be patient and keep scouring the consignment shops and yard sales - since the yard sales seem to shifting into high gear around here.  I'm also going to keep checking Home Goods, since you never know what you're going to find at Home Goods.   If anyone has any hot tips for a mirror that falls into my criteria above let me know - or even a Craigs List lead that I could DIY into what I want.   I have a few other DIY options that I'm contemplating, so you may just see one of those in a future post.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!
