After some helpful suggestions from the folks at AT:Chicago, I hit the Brown Elephant in Andersonville. The manager cut me a deal on three enormous old dresser mirrors. For the record - the idea of spilling vines over the wall was also awesome, but the planting area in question was occupied. And vines need more sun than my garden gets, apparently. Boo.
Anyone else have home projects or great escapes photos to share? Tag them in flickr with apartmenttherapychicago and we'll find you!
