NY Good Questions: How Should I Cover Up This Mirror?

Pin it button
Dear AT,

I have been living with this ridiculously huge mirror (roughly 7.5 x 7 feet) on our living room wall for several years, and I just can't stand it anymore.

Taking it down is out of the question for now as it is cemented on firmly, and finding someone to remove it safely will be very difficult and probably costly.

Hence, I appeal to you and your readers for ideas on how I can cover it up and/or turn it an asset instead of an eyesore!...

So far, the best idea I have had is to hang fabric to span the width of the couch.

I like the fabric in the second picture, and if I went this route, I would paint the walls to match the ground color to make the whole effect more subtle.

It is a small room (maybe 11 x 12) and while the quilt I put up helps cut down the reflections, it is a bit too busy (understatement). I'm over it!

Thanks! Lisa
