Mirror, Mirror on the Wall.....
I have a question for you. Can a person have too many mirrors in their home? I've been doing a little Post-Holiday tweaking around here lately and I suddenly realized that I have a mirror at every turn! Seriously. Are guests going to stroll around my home and suddenly start hearing "Your So Vain" in the depths of their subconcious? I'm seriously worried here. I did take one down yesterday, but I still think there may be too many. These are the things I obsess about people.
Take a look see, and tell me what you think.
This one's in the Dining Room and it's the first thing you see when you walk into my home.
I got this mirror at Penney's and I love it so it's staying put.
This little guy I picked up at Goodwill for a couple bucks. It fills a small space next to my front door perfectly. I've tried so many different things here and this works the best.
I just redid this whole wall in my Living Room. I used to have a huge picture over the sofa, but since I replaced the old sofa with this new one I found on Craig's List, I had to take it down. I decided to do a wallscape using some vintage mirrors I had just been storing in my garage. I then added a couple of sconces I got at a thrift store for $2 a piece.
I was so afraid to do this at first. Just the thought of putting all of those holes in my walls, and then what if I hated it?? I couldn't even lay it out on the floor because I'd never be able to hang them exactly the same way. Too much work. Obsessing again, I know. I told you! I'm happy with the end result though.
Remember my friend Stacy? She moved last month and I inherited so many wonderful treasures from her, including these mirrors from Italy that I used in this wallscape.
The one in the middle I found at a yard sale last summer and it matched the others so it worked.
The last one is a mirror that I got from Sam's Club a few years back and it's huge. The frame is what really makes it. I've never seen a large mirror with a frame of this scale. It kinda makes the room complete.
Individually, I love them all. But as a whole, is it too much? Is this the House of Mirrors? Does it resemble the Fun House at the carnival? Help me out here.
On another note, I let my little buddy play hooky today and we're having a fun little PJ day. Got alot to get done around here today. After all, it's alot of work to keep all of these mirrors clean!
