What a weekend! We lost power on Friday night due to high winds and didn’t get it back on until Sunday night! It was fun at first enjoying the fireplace and candle light, but by Sunday morning, all the dishes were really piling up and we were so cold! I am not complaining. Thank goodness we didn’t have tornadoes like some folks. I am extremely grateful.
On to MIRRORS! I love mirrors…and I don’t mean to look in. I mean, yes, I do use mirrors to get ready every day, but mirrors can be so much more within your house décor than just a rectangle blob over your bathroom sink (did you know you can frame those by the way?). They can open up a small space and make it look bigger. They can be added to spice up a boring room, or grouped together to add some charm. You can also find them without breaking the bank.
While we still had power Friday night, I decided to switch out our family portrait in the foyer (found a better location!) with a mirror I had in my dining room (Ballard Design). I do that a lot-mixing things up can give you a whole new look without spending a dime. Here is a picture of the new look in my foyer:
Recently I purchased 2 sunburst mirrors which are very popular these days, but they can be expensive. These were $39 ea. at Home Depot (Thanks Decor Chick-see her button). I think they literally “brighten up” the space just like a sun would! I normally like silver, but suns need to be gold I think? What do you think? Excuse the picture-I am still learning how to take pictures, and you can see the holes from what use to be there.
Here are a few other mirrors. . .
OO la la. . . mirrors will give your room a sparkle, an edge. You can hang a little one by the front door to check your make-up (or not), or you can put one on your table flat just for decoration. Mirrors let us peak into a whole different world!
