3 Unexpected Spots To Display A Mirror

3 Unexpected Spots To Display A Mirror

After merging two households, we suddenly found ourselves with a surplus of mirrors. As our apartment came together, the task of dealing with this abundance kept getting put on the back burner. Not until last week, when push came to shove and we had to start hanging artwork, did we finally decide what to do with our extra mirrors.

1. Initially we were going to hang a large piece of artwork above this vintage dresser but we decided to instead go for a cozy vignette. Layering a gold frame, a mirror and framed artwork, the mirror peeks out and adds a fun touch to the small space.

2-3 A while back we came across this mirror in a thrift store--at less than $5, we had to take it home. Inexpensive price tag aside, we knew we'd be able to put it to use somewhere in the house. It was only recently that we thought to place it in the built-in bookshelf. The top shelf had always felt uneven to us-- but since putting the mirror up, it feels complete.

4. We got lucky and found this mirror on the side of the road (score). At first it sat on top of our outdoor table as a sort of runner/centerpiece. But then the table broke, so the mirror found a new home--covering up some of the concrete bricks while adding a touch of texture to the outdoor space.
