Personalize your home with a custom equestrian mirror from October Design Co.
Around here at Horses & Heels, I am a big fan of repurposing old items into something new, especially when it comes to horse tack. October Design Co. creates leather equestrian mirrors from vintage tack and can create you a custom mirror if you provide the tack. It’s a great way to turn a bridle or bit of a special horse into a forever keepsake for your home.
Pictured above is a custom project made with a braided bridle and full cheek snaffle bit, it adds a touch of rustic charm to this bathroom.
The mirrors can be made with bits and pieces of bridles, girths, and harnesses.
October Design Co. also offers a variety of lighting fixtures made from rustic and vintage recycled materials. Founder Stephanie Reppas blends minimalist design with urban rustic pieces which results in one of a kind designs. Based in New York, Stephanie spends her days turning discarded items into something beautiful. In addition to the lighting and mirror collection, a furniture, clothing, jewelry, housewares and textile line is in the works.
This is a perfect example of a before and after; a twisted snaffle bit mirror made for a happy customer.
